How a Super PAC can get around the no coordination rule

I questioned whether possible Presidential candidate Stephen Colbert was coordinating with his Super PAC. You see Colbert urged South Carolina primary voters to cast a vote for Herman Cain as a proxy for Colbert. Colbert's Super PAC ran an ad endorsing that idea. And no coordination is allowed under the law.

Well, I stand corrected. Colbert teaches another lesson. He says a Super PAC can notify the candidate of what it's going to do as long as the candidate doesn't endorse it. Check out Colbert's piece below.
