Bloomberg to dump $2M into Chicago race to defeat gun advocate Halvorson
#1
Quote:New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken the gun fight to Chicago and is poised to spend $2 million in an attempt to defeat former Rep. Debbie Halvorson in her bid for the U.S. House seat vacated by disgraced Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr.
Most of the mayor’s super PAC cash has financed an air war against Mrs. Halvorson, a one-term Democratic congresswoman and longtime state legislator with an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association, Politico reports.
A Bloomberg adviser told Politico that the mayor, an independent, made the decision to spend the money “without blinking.”
“The fact that it’s a special election, the fact that it’s in the middle of a national debate over the president’s plan … [there is an] understanding that it’s both a bellwether and a harbinger.”

Bloomberg is a scumbag.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Not always, but you have to go back pretty far.

If Debbie Halvorson loses in IL today it will scare every politician in the country who supports the NRA. Bloomberg has spent over $3 Million of his money to make sure she is not elected. He is supporting an anti from NYC who now lives in IL. The last poll I saw should Bloomberg's candidate winning.

He can throw more money at unseating politicians he doesn't like than the NRA, GOA, and anyone else can ever think of spending. And, that's exactly what he plans to do. He wants to be a King.

And, so Bloomberg's hand-picked candidate wins after he buys the election for her. And, one of the first quotes out of her mouth was:

“You did more than choose a Democratic candidate for Congress,” Kelly said in her victory address. “You did more than I ever could have imagined. You sent a message that was heard around our state and across the nation. A message that tells the NRA that their days of holding our country hostage are coming to an end. And their days of scaring Congress into submission on gun control are coming to a close.”

I don't know if we should be more disgusted by the politicians who allow him to buy them or the voters who actually vote for them.

You can cross party lines in the IL primary so every Republican voter (and there aren't many there) could have voted for Halvorson. And, word was that a lot of them were doing it but somehow $3 Million buys you enough stupid voters.
