Dear Ms. White,

Like many other Americans, I was appalled by the Supreme Court's decision in the Citizens United case.  The unfortunate reality of politics these days is that money equals power, not free speech.  While the SEC cannot undo the damage the Supreme Court has done.  It can require publicly traded companies to disclose who their campaign donations are going to.  This single act could help to bring transparency to a huge factor in political campaigns and ensure that shareholders know that donations are being made in their interests.

I strongly, strongly encourage you to enact such a rule.
