Satrical Super PAC Now Benefits Charities

A little year-end donations with humor.

From Politico

Comedian Stephen Colbert's massive super PAC cash stash won't fund political attack ads or anything of the sort.

Instead, it's going to six charitable organizations.

Colbert announced...on Comedy Central's Cobert Report that the $773,704.03 his now-defunct Americans for a Better Tomorrow Tomorrow super PAC...In an apparent final act of a nearly year-and-a-half-long gag about the influence of money in politics, Colbert  is giving $125,000 each to the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of charities, Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity, plus another $125,000 to Yellow Ribbon Fund, which supports injured military members...Another $125,000 each would go to the Center for Responsive Politics and the Campaign Legal Center...
