FEC Approves Stephen Colbert's SuperPAC

Hosted by  • 

After a hearing today before the Federal Election Commission, one reporter said, "Even a gifted comedian can't make campaign-finance law funny." But Stephen Colbert did get at least part of what he asked for, permission to form the Colbert SuperPAC, or Political Action Committee, so he could collect and spend campaign money, without being required to disclose where it came from.
