Stephen Colbert Gets His Political 'Super PAC,' For America
Famous pretend cable blowhard Stephen Colbert has been trying to get a "Super Political Action Committee" approved by Clarence Thomas, and now there's a Colbert PAC, so that the multi-millionaire entertainer can legally raise unlimited amounts of money for whatever he wants. This is funny, we guess?
"In the course of dramatizing the campaign finance law's problems in the way that Mr. Colbert dramatizes all problems, he almost opened up serious disclosure loopholes in campaign finance law," Wertheimer said.[USA TODAY]
The FEC ruling, he said, "simply confirms what people would have thought the law was when it comes to the media exemption and what TV personalities can do on their own shows."
