During his live comedy performance on Yahoo on Thursday evening, comedian Bill Maher shocked audiences around the world when he announced he’d be donating $1 million to Priorities USA Action — a pro-Obama Super PAC.

Priorities USA Action bills itself as an “organization dedicated to mobilizing Americans to preserve, protect and promote the middle class, and to ensure opportunity and freedom for the next generation.”
