This evening, the Campaign Legal Center officially dedicated the Ham Rove Memorial Conference Room, with an assist from comedian Stephen Colbert, in order to meet the sole condition for accepting a generous check from the Ham Rove Memorial Fund. The popular host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report provided videotaped remarks (link below) for the occasion and personally donated a life-sized portrait of himself, which now hangs at the Legal Center.
The Ham Rove Memorial Fund was created by Mr. Colbert with money he raised though his Colbert Super PAC. Legal Center President Trevor Potter, through his private law practice, was a frequent guest on the show serving as Mr. Colbert’s attorney and explaining the intricacies of campaign finance and tax law. Mr. Potter helped to create the Colbert Super PAC, the related 501(c)(4) Colbert Super PAC SHH and ultimately the Ham Rove Memorial Fund where the hundreds of thousands of dollars from Colbert Super PAC had vanished in November 2012 without a trace, courtesy of loopholes in the IRS regulations.
In this month’s catch up we have new books from Father James Martin and Maurice Sendak, interviews with Frank Lesser, Rory Albanese, Sam Bee and Steve Carell, Amy Sedaris casting news and John Oliver talks about wearing Stephen Colbert hand-me-downs and hosting ‘The Daily Show’.
Stephen Colbert’s Ham Rove Memorial Fund Makes Generous Contribution to Campaign Legal Center
Conference Room to be Named in Honor of the Late Ham Rove
Last night, Stephen Colbert announced on the Colbert Report that the Ham Rove Memorial Fund had made a grant of more than $135,000 to the Campaign Legal Center. A condition of the grant requires that the Legal Center name its conference room The Ham Rove Memorial Conference Room. The staff at the Legal Center is already referring to the room by its new name and look forward to dedicating the conference room and bringing the space into full compliance with the condition as soon as the plaque arrives.
“We vow to do our best to ensure that groups like Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Colbert Super PAC SHH will not be able to get away with their anonymous shell game shenanigans in future election cycles,” said Legal Center President Trevor Potter. “We are also delighted that the Ham Rove Memorial Fund made a similar contribution to our friends at the Center for Responsive Politics for the invaluable service they provide in tracking money in our political system.”
