Colbert Donates Super PAC Funds to Charity

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 that the $773,704.03 his now-defunct Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow super PAC is giving $125,000 each to the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of charities, Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity, plus another $125,000 each to Yellow Ribbon Fund, which supports injured military members, the Center for Responsive Politics and the Campaign Legal Center.

Stephen Colbert is very much engaged in political work in this move to redirect funds from this Super PAC towards these two organizations that are first and foremost focused on influencing elections.
