Colbert’s Super PAC Treasurer Defects to the Rick Perry Campaign


Salvatore Purpura, the treasurer for Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC “Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow,” resigned from his post last Thursday. Then on Monday it was revealed that he has signed on to be the campaign treasurer for Rick Perry. Yes, the lines between comedy and real-deal politics are somehow getting even more blurry over at the Report. Colbert had this to say: “We’re happy for Sal and we are even happier that Governor Parry has sent the clear signal of which super PAC he trusts to receive all that unlimited money waiting to pour in on his behalf. Loud and clear, sir. Unofficially, loud and clear.”
