Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

Dear SEC members,

I resent that Corporations can be the hidden hand which manipulates our political system.

When everything else is so transparent, why not their contributions.

I hope you can restore some of my faith in American democracy by changing this current modus operandi.

Invite Corporations and benefiting politicians to come clean on who they influence and by whom they are influenced. Please end this non-disclosure practice of Corporations influencing our politicians.
