Mayors Against Illegal Guns: Still Naked On The Porch

By Cranky

Back in 2004 Jersey City mayoral candidate Jerramiah Healy was photographed exposing himself on his front porch and chalked it up to a night of drinking. Apparently the citizens of Jersey City were just fine with the explanation and elected him anyway. As mayor, he has been a member of Mayor Mike’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) and has enjoyed the endorsement of “MoneyBags” Bloomberg (no surprise) and even President Barack Obama . . .

However, it seems the story of that revealing night back in 2004 has become, well, fluid.  The mayor has given a different and bizarre new account of that night in a recent interview. In his original story, His Honor claimed he’d had six or eight beers and wasn’t quite sure how he ended up in his birthday suit in front of his home.

In the new version, however, he was lured outside of the house and taken advantage of:

Healy said he was woken up that night by women banging trash cans outside. He wrapped himself in a towel and went outside and found “three Hispanic girls, young kids.”

“‘So I go out on the porch and they pulled the towel off me,’ he said. ‘Now I start laughing, and then they started doing other stuff. I said, ‘I’m old enough to be your grandfather.'”

Healy said “it was filthy” and he “chased them away.” When he sat down, Healy says he was photographed by a political enemy. Who just happened to be there.

That story is more than a little odd…and creepy. Just as creepy as fellow MAIG member Jay Schiliro who was arrested on charges of official oppression, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, recklessly endangering another person and providing alcohol to a minor for an incident in which he held a teen male at gunpoint while requesting oral sex.  Alcohol was involved in this incident as well. Another MAIG member, Craig Lowe, was found passed out at the wheel of his car at the scene of a crash.  Police say he appeared intoxicated.

I have said it before, and I stand by it now: members of this organization an others who support gun control do so based on the idea that since they don’t have the self-control and maturity to handle firearms, alcohol, and automobiles, everyone must be similarly lacking.

    Three Dog Night said it best: Jerramiah was a bullsh1tter. He was no friend of mine. I never believed a single word he said, so he can kiss my big behind.

    Oh, wait. He’d probably like that. Never mind.

      They should have thrown him in the deep blue sea… Joy to you and me..

    It’s kind of like how Eliot Spitzer was the “crusader against prostitution” but was using a call girl service. I would say all (okay, at least almost all) politicians have the same sort of “do as I say, not as I do” entitlement mentality.

    Yeah, guys, take it easy. I mean who HASN’T gotten drunk and exposed himself in public?

    Yeah, I’m often awakened at night by women banging trash cans, & people retrowling my sidewalk at night, thats gotten to be a real problem. At least make up a good lie, one that is believable to the bradys, like he was cleaning his NAA derringer on the porch because the light was better out there, Randy

      He should have just taken Biden’s advice and fired two blasts through his door. Oh wait, he doesn’t own guns, I guess indecent exposure is his only alternative. Then again, any exposure to MAIG and its cronies is indecent exposure.

        Biden has a double barrel 12 gauge. Healy has a single shot .410.

    This is why I’m a single-issue voter. I believe you can discern everything you’d ever need to know about a person by their stance on the 2A. Like most opinions on life, one’s beliefs regarding it are far-reaching and touch on almost every part of his life. Dig enough at a gun-grabber, and you will always find a criminal, a fool, a sociopath, a fascist, a coward, or likely all of the above. Every single time, guaranteed.

      I heard there was a group called “Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors”.

      1. avatar jdb says:

        Eh, I just call them Illegal Mayors Against Guns (IMAG).

    “Moneybags” Bloomberg.

    Not quite the type of bag I was thinking, but oh well.

  9. avatar Russ Bixby says:

    Y’know, those MAIG people have reached rock bottom and started to dig.

    Jay Shiliro would appear to be so low that when they bury him, they’ll have to dig upward.

    I would also refer you to “The rise of sociopaths in American politics”

    Something to note: Craig Lowe was just voted out of office, in one of the most liberal cities in Florida and replaced by a Tea Party guy! Seriously, Gainesville is MAYBE outranked in liberalism/antigunism by West Palm or Miami.

    1. avatar Nine says:

      Don’t remind me…, I almost got HAMMERED drunk at him being voted out.

  12. avatar Joel says:

    Hey look, it’s the drunken bum mayor of me old hometown. There’s some great video on youtube of this guy drunk and singing Sinatra in some local bar, and some other video of him meeting with people who are handing him money for his campaign in exchange for promised preferential treatment in city contracts. With any luck he’ll be out of a job after Tuesday’s election.

    Another heart warming story brought to you by the folks at “Illegal Mayors Against All Guns”.

    Did he take any Menendez flights to the Caribbean by any chance?
