Stephen Colbert Educates The Public About Crossroads GPS

If you remember, Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report, formed a Super PAC so he could collect gobs of money to influence the upcoming presidential election. Well, Colbert found out about Karl Rove's Super PAC, "American Crossroads" and his non-profit 501 (c) (4) corporation called Crossroads GPS which gets millions from anonymous donors. So, Colbert decides to form his own 501 (c) (4) with the purpose to "educate." This nonprofit can get millions without disclosing its donors which maybe other corporations. Anyway, I'm going to embed the whole thirty minute show since Stephen is brilliant in showing how anonymous money is going hurt in our democracy. Of course, he's funny in doing it.


More funny names for donors of Stephen's Super PAC, plus Ham Rove!

Stephen forms his own 501 (c) (4).

Stephen in a "Dating Game" spoof, tries to select a billionaire to give his new 501 (c) (4) millions of dollars. Guess who are the first two billionaires. Kevin Kline hosts.

Interviews Mark Cuban.
