Stephen Colbert gets the go-ahead for his own Super PAC
With the election floodgates thrown open to unlimited corporate and union spending on candidates, comedian Colbert daringly threw his hat (the one collecting money) into the ring and came out of court a winner.
Noted Colbert after the ruling:
“I am here to represent your voice so you can all hear what you have to say through my mouth,” Colbert announced to the press following the FEC hearing. “I’m sorry to say, we won!”
“I don’t know about you, but I do not accept limits on my free speech. I don’t know about you, but I do not accept the status quo. But I do accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Fifty dollars or less, please because then I do not need to keep a record.”
