Paul Ryan tells a bad–very bad-joke…sad, sad, sad.. It was the Supreme Court that blew it back in 2010
I was perusing a newsletter by PUBLIC CITIZEN and learned:
Colbert’s pursuit of Super PAC could be damaging
Comedian Stephen Colbert may be trying to form a Super PAC to make a point about the corruption of the political system, but if he succeeds, it would set a bad precedent, some say. “We appreciate that Mr. Colbert submitted his advisory opinion request in the spirit of political comedy, but we’re not going to stand by and watch potentially damaging unintended consequences to decades of important campaign finance law,” Paul Ryan, associate legal counsel for the Campaign Legal Center, said this week. Funny thing is, the head of the Campaign Legal Center is acting as Colbert’s lawyer to help him pull the stunt.
