Excerpt taken from article.

No kidding: Comedian Stephen Colbert's satirical Super PAC raised some serious cash. Between July 1 and Dec. 31, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow collected more than $825,400, ending the year with nearly $674,000 cash on hand, according to disclosures filed over night with the Federal Election Commission.

In an accompanying memo to the Federal Election Commission, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow Treasurer Shauna Polk* noted that the Super PAC had raised $1,023,121 as of Monday.

Then, Polk offered an unconventional statement.

"Stephen Colbert, President of ABTT, has asked that I quote him as saying, ‘Yeah! How you like me now, F.E.C? I'm rolling seven digits deep! I got 99 problems but a non-connected independent-expenditure only committee ain't one!'" Polk wrote, adding, "I would like it noted for the record that I advised Mr. Colbert against including that quote."
