Bill Maher Pledges $1 Million to Priorities USA Action, Obama Super PAC

Bill Maher is giving $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama Super PAC.

Maher announced the donation at the end of a streaming hourlong special of his CrazyStupidPolitics show on Yahoo.

Super PACs, as we’ve learned mainly from Colbert’s Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, can raise unlimited amounts of money to support political causes; however they can’t coordinate with their favored candidates.

In a statement released after the show, Maher said that if Obama beats any of the Republican contenders it would be “worth a million dollars” and that “this is the wisest investment I think I could make.”
