Salvatore Purpura, the treasurer of Stephen Colbert’s Super PAC — called Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow — has resigned from his position to join Texas Governor Rick Perry’s presidential committee, according to Politico.
“We’re not surprised,” Colbert said in an email to Politico. “Sal is the best in the business. That’s why we went with him.”
“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.”
“On August 13, write-in Rick Parry. That’s Parry, with an ‘A’ — for America.”
The group’s second TV ad criticized “outside groups like Jobs for Iowa” for using “cheap cornography” to promote the presidential candidacy of Gov. Perry.
