Just like a real candidate: Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC raises over $1-million
Stephen Colbert’s U.S. presidential aspirations may not be serious, but his fundraising is. The late-night television comedian’s Super PAC announced on Tuesday that it has raised more than $1-million.
Shauna Polk, treasurer of Colbert’s Super Political Action Committee “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow,” said in a filing with the Federal Election Commission that, as of Jan. 30, the group’s donations totaled $1,023,121.24.
“Stephen Colbert, President of ABTT, has asked that I quote him as saying, ’Yeah! How you like me now, F.E.C? I’m rolling seven digits deep! I got 99 problems but a non-connected independent-expenditure only committee ain’t one,”’ Polk said in the filing. (Photo: Mark Wilson/Getty Images)
