Stephen Colbert funnels $500,000 of his super PAC $$$ to help out Sandy relief efforts & our troops!
by BruinKid



Last night, Stephen Colbert may or may not have used his super PAC money to give to the Ham Rove Memorial Fund.

Nation, you know, as we say goodbye to 2012, I want to take a moment here to bid a fond farewell to someone we lost this year: Ham Rove. Ham was chief strategist and principal lunch meat for Colbert Super PAC. Then last month, tragedy struck when he fell repeatedly onto a knife that I was holding. Before we could get him to a doctor, he was eaten by a dog. I can't tell you how much Ham meant to me.

Well, technically I could, but it's a super PAC, so legally I don't have to. Just like I don't have to tell you where the $773,704.83 of super PAC money went. I just hope and pray they're both in a better place now.

Well, that brings me to this letter I received from a group calling itself the Ham Rove Memorial Fund, which I was surprised to learn I am on the board of. Now, in the letter that I sent to me, it says that the fund was founded to honor Ham's memory with charitable gifts. And recently, the fund received an anonymous donation of $773,704.83. Now, where did that specific amount of cash come from? Well, it says it came from P.O. Box Bite Me.

3. No moment of anything for ham rove

screw him and the money bags that brought him.
I hope when he dies he dies penniless and broken. He caused a lot of harm to our Democracy. It will take years to correct some of the things he was in on.
Sorry no respect from me (-;

2. Been wondering what he was going to do with that money. Some of it's mine.

Okay, maybe only $20 but still...

9. I think they're BOTH Rove, actually.

So it's really a trick question, right?

5. The Colbert team was brilliant with this running gag that showed just how corrupt Citizens

United has made things. Things were bad before, but now they can threaten anyone in Congress with an opponent with virtually unlimited funds if they do not comply!

10. Senator Colbert

Would do a lot to help this country; as long as he could retain his staff of writers in his Senate position. Imagine the hilarity that would ensue when he calls out people on the hill. Sadly it would be more productive and likely expose more corruption than anything in the history of our country.

11. He actually does more good on his tv show which reaches millions of people.

Plus he is not bound by pesky Congressional rules which say you cannot call other Congress members names.
