NPR's "All Things Considered"

Excerpt taken from article.

Trevor Potter is a Washington lawyer with the firm Caplin and Drysdale. He also served as chair of the Federal Election Commission.

And he says Stephen Colbert is not joking.

At least when it comes to the comedian's SuperPAC, a political action committee authorized by the FEC to make "unlimited independent expenditures." Colbert's is called Americans For A Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow.

Colbert didn't get it without help. He hired Potter to submit the paperwork and coach him on his FEC hearing.
