Corporate influence in our electoral processes is destroying our democracy. I am amazed and disturbed by the Citizens United verdict. I am appalled that the actions of Clarence Thomas have not been investigated. To the American people, this smacks of collusion at the highest levels.

Please, take steps to restore the faith of the American people in both our leadership and our system of government. Please, issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending and lobbying activities.

This is a vital step that is fundamentally necessary to the continued stability of our nation.
