Who has heard of [[|Citizens United]]? This was a Supreme Court case from 2010 that had a huge impact on how political campaigns could be financed.

In 2012, Stephen Colbert created his own [[|Super PAC]], and he actually [[|got it]]. He then announced that he would be [[|running for President]] (of South Carolina). Because of the way the laws are written, he cannot be [[|in charge]] of the money in that Super PAC. This is one of the [[|ads]] that actually ran in South Carolina. He consulted with an "[[|advisor]]" about how to spend his money. Finally, he decided to [[|close his Super PAC]] and consulted a [[|lawyer]] on how to keep his money.

If you'd like to see more, this is the website he ran for his [[|campaign]].
