Reader CM reports from the Evergreen State:
As you know, in Washington state we’ve got “the billionaires’” initiative 594 on the ballot this year to implement universal background checks. Well today I found an example of how King Bloomberg is spending his money to push it through. I loaded up the Seattle Times website (the largest paper in the state) today at lunch and had my retinas burned by the above . . .
And this continued down the side of the page:
Did he buy the whole damn paper? That’s right, every single ad space on the entire front page of the Seattle Times’ website is for Everytown for Gun Safety. I couldn’t have photoshopped more ads in there. Full of lies and misrepresentations of course.
It will be interesting to see if this continues all the way up to the election. The pro-594 TV spots have been on during prime time, on all the local news casts, morning and night and during NFL games. We can only hope it turns into the biggest waste of political donations in the history of initiatives.
