(Newser) – Bill Maher isn't being coy about his political allegiance. As part of his standup show last night, broadcast live by Yahoo, the comedian gave a giant check for $1 million to a pro-President Obama super PAC. The money adds to the nearly $4.5 million Priorities USA Action has raised on Obama's behalf, according to the Hollywood Reporter. (It took in a slim $59,000 last month, notes the Hill.) Maher later tweeted that Yahoo hadn't known about the donation. "Most important advice I ever got in show business, as true today as then: always bring ur wallet onstage," he tweeted.

Watch Bill's contract with HBO jump one mil so his boss and tribe can give more than the limit to help Obama and themselves stay in power. A liberal 2% ethnic minority running the media for decades and now the Fed and government through votes bought with union benefits, welfare, and brainwashed TV watchers. Wake up and think about it America, it's almost too late.

One more annoying Zionist with too much money. With criminals James Maher and Larry Fairfax as family members, it gets even more interesting:

Once again the Newser censors strike. No free speech on this site. Anyone who discents from the opinions of users and the "reporters" has their comments removed. Once again stifles free speech. I have plenty of proof to show the world of your bias. Foolish move by you.
