Colbert's Super PAC Approved by FEC

Stephen Colbert appeared before the FEC today in order to get permission to talk about his political action committee, "Colbert Super PAC" on The Colbert Report.

The 5-1 decision by the FEC only allows Colbert to promote the PAC on his own show, not on other Viacom or Comedy Central Programs. 

According to the NYT, here's Colbert's response after the FEC hearing:

“There will be others who say, Stephen Colbert, what will you do with the unrestricted super PAC money?” Mr. Colbert told reporters after the F.E.C. hearing. “To which I say, I don’t know. Give it to me and let’s find out.”

And for those who can't get enough Stephen Colbert, here's a video of his statement after the FEC hearing.
