A Colbert Runs for Office, for Real

Yes, Stephen has thrown his hat in the ring, sort of, a couple of times, and begged Gov. Nikki Haley appoint him to the vacant seat in Congress, in his native S. Carolina, that for some reason she gave to Tea Party favorite Tim Scott. Now another Colbert--his sister--is going to run to win Scott's seat in a special election, The Washington Post reports today. She is Elizabeth Colbert-Busch.  The Post:
"Colbert-Busch has worked in recent years at Clemson University, and she’s got quite the story to tell, according to this 2010 profile in the Charleston Post and Courier:
"Her father and two of her brothers were killed in a plane crash when she was 19. She was married to a man who ended up on 'America’s Most Wanted.' And in 2001, while at a business conference in New York City, she was sitting in a building directly across the street from the World Trade Center when two jetliners slammed into its twin towers, forever changing the landscape of America."
