Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

If so many companies freely disclose their political spending (60%) what are other companies hiding and why? Let's find out how they spend into our political system to be a truly informed public. Thank you for contributing to justice and improving our great country.

It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.

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.
