Stephen Colbert‘s “Super-PAC,” or political action committee, has been approved by the Federal Election Commission to not only be formed, but also be promoted on his show The Colbert Report.
As part of a skit on his show, Stephen mocked the Supreme Court decision Citizens United v F.E.C. that allowed campaigns to have unlimited amounts of corporate donations by trying to form a political action committee.
But then the skit became real.
According to The New York Times, the Federal Election Commission ruled that Stephen can promote the Colbert Super-PAC on his show without Viacom having disclosure rules.
But Stephen is only allowed to promote the Super-PAC on his show and not other networks.
“There will be others who say, ‘Stephen Colbert, what will you do with the unrestricted Super-PAC money?’ ” Stephen told reporters after the hearing. “To which I say, I don’t know. Give it to me and let’s find out.”
