Colbert Super PAC Spending -- Not All That Interesting

January 31, 2012
Thanks to Federal Election Commission filings, we now know that Stephen Colbert's Super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, raised more than $1 million between mid-2011 and the end of this month, leading Colbert to gloat in the filing: "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!" 

Most of the money was raised from small donors and more than $150,000 was spent in the last six months of 2011, according to the filings. So how did ABTT spend all that cash? Much of it went toward the same boring stuff found in other campaign finance reports: media consulting, Web and legal services and advertising.

One notable difference: Colbert's Super PAC spent money on writing by Well Read Doofus Productions (run by Scott Sherman, a staff writer for "The Colbert Report.") and media consulting by Humor Logistics Corporation. And the PAC also spent money designing and manufacturing T-shirts so nonsensical only a hipster could love them.
