Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

The huge amounts of money from large corporations and the very wealthy going to influence elections is frightening. No, corporations are not "people".

All donors must be required to publicize names and amounts whenever they give to candidates or PACS. I propose that quarterly those donors be required to publish political donations in the newspapers and on the SEC website as well as their own, so that the public knows what's going on.

Thank you for considering my comment.
