Times must be tough for Mike Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns. It doesn’t appear there are enough living mayors willing to identify themselves as members of the gun-grabbing group any more. So now they’re resorting to using the names of dead mayors to swell their membership rolls. Looks like Mikey’s taken some pointers from former Chicago Mayor Daley in how to drum up extra support in a pinch…
As pagunblog.com reports, Freeland Borough, PA’s mayor Tim Martin’s been dead for over a year and MAIG continues to claim him as a proud member. But that’s not all they’re doing in his name.
In fact, not only do they claim him as a member, but the deceased mayor has signed his name to at least two advertisements, three letters to Congress, and one letter to the President sent by Michael Bloomberg’s office. Now, just how on earth is Bloomberg getting a dead man to sign his letters? And why are media outlets running advertisements that are clearly fraudulent?
Why indeed. Sympathy with MAIG’s cause surely has nothing whatsoever to do with it.
So now that MAIG has become the gun grabbers of the living dead, there must be plenty of other deceased mayors that are just itching to join the prestigious organization. It appears Dumfries, VA mayor Fred Yohey has recently passed on. So has the mayor of San Carlos, CA, Omar Ahmad. I’m sure that if the wizards at MAIG can Google half as well as I can, they can just about double their membership rolls overnight. Collecting their dues may be more difficult, however.
