Your commission's whole purpose for existence is to prevent financial abuse is publicly traded companies. The issue of policitical spending is so core to your very mission, it is inconceivable that the commission could take ANY position other than to require disclosure of this spending. You know this, now we, the public you serve, count on you to do the right thing.
