You know what they say, "Follow the money!"
Stephen Colbert did a season-long expose' of just what a scam these super-PACs really are during the last election when he created one himself.
Besides exposing the fact that the law prohibiting coordination between candidates and PACs is an absolute joke, the biggest "reveal" came when he,
(Colbert) demonstrated what the law allows them to do with leftover donations that didn't get spent during the election season.
To make a long story short, there are these little "loopholes," (imagine that) that basically allow the PAC organizer to pocket the cash or "donate it
to the non-profit of their choice."
If I remember correctly, Colbert's "non-profit of choice" ended up being quite similar to the "Send your money to Al Franken" skit in the early days
Always "Follow the money!"
