Finally, he decided to [[http://www.cc.com/video-clips/kj1cs9/the-colbert-report-colbert-super-pac-shh----karl-rove---jon-stewart|close his Super PAC]] and consulted a [[http://www.cc.com/video-clips/66y7dx/the-colbert-report-colbert-super-pac-shh----secret-second-501c4---trevor-potter|lawyer]] on how to keep his money.
