Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.  The evidence of the detrimental impact of hidden corporate spending has become clear since the Citizens United decision.  All of us have an interest in knowing who supports which candidates and which political decisions.  You can serve the public interest by requiring disclosure.

So I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.

Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.

Thank you for considering my comment.
