All about Super PACS

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

SANTA FE — Super PACs have overwhelmed the political scene this year. Their presence is gigantic. It takes 10 million $10 contributions to equal the hundreds of millions that one high roller drops in.
During the presidential primary nearly every candidate had a personal billionaire on hand for any help that might be needed. And the way these billionaires sidled up to the candidate of their choice — even appearing on stage with them — it seemed obvious that the rule about not coordinating with the candidate’s campaign was a complete joke.
Comedy Channel program hosts Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart had a slapstick routine for several programs in which Colbert formed a Super PAC staffed by volunteers from Stewart’s office, which was just down the hall in the same building.
Stewart, as a candidate, supposedly wanted to follow the rules and not do any coordinating. But that was rich guy Colbert’s total plan. So Colbert chased Stewart all over the building with doors slamming and Stewart screaming for help.
Sadly, Colbert raised over $1 million for his Super PAC simply by making a joking request for funds one night. The donations didn’t cause Colbert any paper work since names of Super PAC contributors are secret.
