Colbert: ‘The more money you have, the more you can speak’


Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert declared Sunday that he believes in Super PACs because “the more money you have, the more you can speak.”

Last week, Colbert turned the Super PAC that he founded over to Comedy Central host Jon Stewart so as not to run afoul of campaign laws while he considers running for the Republican presidential nomination in South Carolina.

The Stewart-controlled Super PAC released an ad Saturday attacking Colbert’s potential opponent Mitt Romney as a “serial killer” for his record of destroying corporations as the head of Bain Capital. Speaking at the Iowa State Fair last year, Romney had asserted that “corporations are people.”
