Stephen Colbert's super PAC, Making a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow has raised more than $1 million since getting a green-light from the Federal Election Commission last June. Making a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow has managed to find hilarity in the minutiae of campaign finance — and revealed its inner workings to millions of Americans. But none of this would've been possible without Trevor Potter, Colbert’s attorney and the former FEC Commissioner.

Trevor Potter is an attorney at Caplin & Drysdale. He joins the program to discuss the wealthy individuals behind super PAC funding.
