Citizens United for Colbert!

Stephen Colbert appeared at the Federal Election Commission in Washington, D.C., on Friday to make the case that his Comedy Central show should be allowed to promote his Political Action Committee, according to Politico, which has all the gory details.

Colbert means to mock the 2010 Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United vs. FEC…

That ruling “allowed corporations and unions to use their general treasuries to pay for political advertisements that expressly call for the election or defeat of a candidate, also known as independent expenditures,” according to a report by the Center for Responsive Politics.

…by making this statement, in a TPMTV video

“And I believe that the Citizens United decision was the right one,” said Colbert. “There should be unlimited corporate money. And I want some of it. I don’t want to be the one chump who doesn’t have any.”

…which would have sounded slightly different had he said there “should be unlimited corporate
and union money.”

But that’s showbiz.
