Stephen Colbert, the time has come: Help Sunlight follow the money


Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report, is in Washington today to register his new Super PAC with the FEC. As he has said on the show, it’s his intention to have the Colbert Super PAC raise unlimited funds to buy political ads.

But do we really need another shadowy organization out there influencing our politicians? We don’t think so, and we bet you agree with us. We believe that Colbert, and any other Super PAC, must disclose their donors. Our democracy depends on it.

If you love democracy, then you should join us as we demand the information we need to follow the money in politics.

Mr. Colbert, have you no sense of decency? Bears are not the number one threat to America. Undisclosed political spending is.

Last year, the Supreme Court ruled that outside groups that take unlimited political donations from any source, commonly known as Super PACs, can now spend unlimited amounts of money in political campaigns. The Federal Election Commission has yet to set up rules to track this flood of money into the political system, so we’ve made it easy for you to do it yourself. Click here to learn more.

Although we’re rounding up our sleuth of transbearency bears to meet Colbert at the FEC and demand disclosure today, we’ve got more up our sleeves. Stay with us to learn what you can do to help.

Don’t let Big Colbert push around your vote this year. Join Sunlight, follow the money, and take a stand for transparency.
