Colbert Campaign May Violate Election Laws

Comedian Stephen Colbert may soon need to get even less serious in his campaign for president.

As ABC reports, Colbert’s ironic presidential bid may run afoul of campaign finance laws. He has already curtailed some activities–for instance, removing Doritos as a campaign sponsor–and the threat of enforcement may preclude him from attempting to get on primary ballots.

As long as he does not raise money and get on ballots, however, I suspect even the Federal Elections Commission has enough of a sense of humor to let him go about his truthy business.
