Bill Maher Hands $1M to Obama Super PAC Presents check during Yahoo standup show By Matt Cantor, Newser User Posted Feb 24, 2012 7:00 AM CST 140 comments Comments Bill Maher donated $1 million to President Obama's Super PAC. (Getty Images) (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.
