Excerpt taken from article.

No joke: Presidential candidate Rick Perry and comedian Stephen Colbert, who last week barraged Iowa voters with advertisements urging voters to support "Rick Parry," shared the same political committee treasurer – until they didn't.

"Obviously, there was a potential conflict of interest," Purpura said. "I told [Colbert lawyer] Trevor [Potter] on Thursday I would not be able to be treasurer anymore."

Shauna Polk, an official at Washington, D.C.-based law firm Caplin & Drysdale, has assumed treasurer duties for Colbert's super PAC, Purpura said.
