Bill Maher makes $1 million donation to Obama super PAC
- A surprise donation Thursday from comedian Bill Maher made a Super PAC supporting President Obama $1 million richer.
The promise of the big check came during a live performance of Maher's stand-up show, CrazyStupidPolitics. Maher tweeted later that the donation to Priorities USA Action had been a surprise to Yahoo!, which broadcast the show.
"I would like to announce tonight a donation to the Obama super PAC which has the very unfortunate tongue-twister name Priorities USA Action. I know, it was named by Borat," Maher joked.
