Colbert's Super PAC Has Raised Over $1 Million

Colbert's Super PAC has raised over $1 millionNEW YORK (AP) - Stephen Colbert's "super" PAC has raised a staggering $1 million.

Political action committees were required to submit their financial reports to the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday. Colbert disclosed that as of Monday, his Americans for a Better Tomorrow PAC has raised more than $1.02 million.

In a letter to the commission, Colbert was quoted as saying "How you like me now, FEC?"

When Colbert recently flirted with running for president, he legally transferred control of his PAC to Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show." On Monday's "The Colbert Report," he hunted down Stewart to regain his PAC presidency.

Colbert raised the money by asking for donations from his viewers. He hasn't yet said what he intends to do with it.

They need to take this colbert and stewart boys off tv and out of the media. They are manipulative left wing extremisist con-artist looking for a laugh at others expence. They are old enough to know better. God Bless America. In God We Trust.

It's not all about comedy! Stephen Colbert has done a lot to educate people about Super PACs. I hope that he, and his lawyer Trever Potter, will work to help make much needed reforms to campaign contribution laws. I believe that's where his Super PAC money will be spent.

He should spend it to get a republican elected, after all he did declare as a republican candidate.
Otherwise he is just another lying politician and he becomes what he mocks.

superpacs sure give the tv stations a nice profit and so do the debates if you do watch a debate count how many sponsors are paying the network for carrying the debate. stephen colbert shed some light on the money issue of campaigning. who is the winning candidate obligated to for taking their money. america has the best government money can buy. stephen im running for dog catcher in the virgin islands can i count on your superpac.
