I am urging you to immediately issue a ruling that exposes the secret funding of elections by publicly-traded corporations. Since the Supreme Court ruling, Citizens United v. Fed. Election Commission two years ago, there has been a flood of undisclosed spending on elections meant to influence candidates who, once elected, pull strings for their corporate cronies. It has been reported that the bulk of the money being spent with such largesse actually belongs to the company's shareholders, working people whose retirement plans are being raided. The way the money cycle is working in Washington, the fastest way to becoming a multi-millionaire is through public office!

I expect you to take immediate action. The American people are waking up will not accept this disgraceful behavior any longer.
