How you like me now, FEC? I’m rolling seven digits deep! I got 99 problems but a non-connected independent-expenditure only committee ain’t one!

Stephen Colbert said in a letter to the commission. The comedian disclosed Tuesday that his Americans for a Better Tomorrow “super” political action committee has raised a staggering $1.02 million. (AP)

Stephen Colbert’s version of politics as performance art passed a significant milestone – his “super PAC” has raised more than $1 million, Mr. Colbert revealed on Tuesday. The PAC — once known as the “The Definitely Not Coordinating With Stephen Colbert Super PAC,” then the “Colbert Super PAC” – is officially called “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.” There were some well-known names on the donor list, including Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor of California ($500), and Bradley Whitford, a star of “The West Wing” ($250), Sarah Maslin Nir reported.

Send them a message. On January 21st, vote Herman Cain.
