Is Stephen Colbert coordinating with his Super PAC?

First, there's this Huffington Post column by Howard Fineman that proposes Jon Huntsman left the race because Stephen Colbert was beating him! Now Colbert can't run for the Republican nomination for President in South Carolina because he can't get on the ballot and there's no place for write ins. So, yesterday he suggested voters cast their choice for former candidate Herman Cain who's still on the ballot. But then today, his Super PAC or let me say now it's Jon Stewart's Super PAC has just produced an ad suggesting that. Coordination? Can't do that, it's illegal. Check out the Colbert's piece and the ad below. You got to love the civics lesson on possible Super PAC coordination with candidates.
