I would like to urge that the SEC pass regulations that would insure transparency in corporate campaign support of candidates. It is essential that investors and stock holders in companies know what that company is doing with money that they have invested. Companies usurp the power of these investors by assuming that they support the executive’s or board’s decision to give whatever amount they wish. This, obviously, is a gratuitous assumption.
