Stephen Colbert's sway in the U.S. presidential election might be a joke, but he's got some real financial muscle.
The comedian disclosed Tuesday that his Americans for a Better Tomorrow "super" political action committee has raised a staggering $1.02 million. PACs were required to submit their financial reports to the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday.
In a letter to the commission, Colbert was quoted as saying, "How you like me now, FEC?"
Colbert raised the money by asking for donations from viewers of "The Colbert Report." He has used the PAC to highlight what he considers the absurdity of campaign finance law and, in particular, the 2010 Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations and unions to raise limitless money to run campaign ads.

Tuesday's FEC filing also revealed the donors who gave more than $200 to Colbert's PAC. Among them are Gavin Newsom, lieutenant governor of California (who gave $500), Bradley Whitford of the "The West Wing" ($250) and "Hot in Cleveland" star Laura Sangiacomo ($250)."
Go to your parent’s bedroom,boys and girls,and take the dollar bills out of your father’s wallet and send them to me.
The phoney campaign thing was done by Pat Paulsen 45 years ago.
Comedy Central probably has better reporting than ABCNNBCBS.
I’d vote for him before Romney.
