WE pay her over 5 Million Dollars a year to overcharge us for electricity; the least she could do is give something back to the community - consider this an act of a guilty rich person.

With her salary and stock option in the millions ($) annually, a $100K cancer donation is a drop in the bucket for her. She needed a tax write-off to offset her income. Why newsworthy????
