Stephen Colbert raises $1.02 Million

Colbert’s super PAC mocks Republican Party

Comedy Central talk show host Stephen Colbert has raised an astounding $1.02 million through his Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, according to the funds latest filing with the Federal Election Commission.

Colbert’s Super PAC was instituted by the comedian as a spoof of campaign finance laws last year, according to New York Daily News.

During his show on Comedy Central, Colbert announced, “an exploratory committee to lay the groundwork” for his “possible candidacy for president of the United States of South Carolina.”  He then handed the topic over to John Steward, of “The Daily Show.” Steward has been running along side Colbert, furthering the complete mockery of the South Carolina Republican Party.

It’s been reported by the Palmetto Public Record, that Colbert has been purchasing television air-time, continuously making a joke out of South Carolina Republicans. But, since it is too late for funny-man Stephen Colbert to officially be on the ballet, Colbert during a rally in South Carolina threw his support behind presidental hopeful Herman Cain.

“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!’” the Super PAC’s treasurer, Shauna Polk, wrote in the filing.

The Comedy Central host has also purchased air-time in Iowa and New Hampshire.
