Stephen Colbert on Monday regained control of his super PAC. And just in time. The deadline to file financial disclosure reports with the Federal Election Commission has arrived. “It’s a great day for transparency,” Colbert said.
As for the report, Colbert thinks “some people are going to be pleasantly dropping a load in their pants.”
As of Monday, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow had raised $1,023,121. ”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!” Colbert said in a memo to the FEC.
