Colbert’s super PAC permitted by FEC

When it comes to the super PAC game, the Federal Election Commission sent clear signals Thursday morning: Stephen Colbert can play, but elected officials should refrain. Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report,” told supporters via his show, Twitter and Facebook in May that he and attorney Trevor Potter, a former FEC chairman, were asking the FEC to provide an advisory opinion regarding the creation of a Colbert Super PAC. “The American Dream is simple — that anyone, no matter who they are, if they are determined, if they are willing to work hard enough, someday will grow up to create a legal entity that will then receive unlimited corporate funds which can be used to influence our elections,” Colbert said previously.

The nutrient criteria were mandated by the EPA after a lawsuit brought by several environmental groups, including the Sierra Club and the St
