In one episode, Colbert enlists his lawyer, Trevor Potter, to create a tax-exempt 501(c)(4) so that he can obtain secret donations in a "completely transparent" way.
"Can I take this (c)(4) money and donate it to my super PAC?" Colbert asked after signing paperwork that registered the shell corporation in Delaware. "You can," Potter said.
The camera then cuts to Colbert, whose face displayed a look of total shock. "Wait," Colbert said. "What is the difference between that and money laundering?"

I've said it before, and stand by it NOW:
If EITHER Jon or Stephen were to actually run, EITHER would get my vote...hands down.
The system is so broken it barely functions!!
I joined and donated to the Colber SuperPAC when it first started.......
And I might very well do so again...now that our household has an income....after nine months without.
I want one of those tee-shirts that says, 'turtle's don't like...' ------------
see ya, gonna go order one NOW!
Go stephen! Go jon!!!!

Their exposure of the super pacs is what news should be. Very informative. The bit making fun of Newt unofficially giving directions to his super pac was hilarious. Why is it that 2 comedians are more informative than CNN/FOX/ MSNBC combined?
