A Potential Gold Mine

Judicial Watch seems to be doing a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to holding Mayor Bloomberg accountable.

The nonprofit, nonpartisan Judicial Watch reported that it filed a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) lawsuit with the New York State Supreme Court requesting that the office of New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg be ordered by a judge “to produce all records of communications between the Office of the Mayor, the director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), and U.S. Vice President Joe Biden.

“We have good reason to suspect that New York taxpayers have been forced to foot the bill for Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun group,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

All communication from the Mayor’s office should be public record. If Bloomberg spends his own money to advocate for gun control, well, that’s his First Amendment right as an American, but if he’s using his office to do so at taxpayer expense, we have a right to know.

    Florida Carry has already found that he’s used public employees to do his work for him.

    NRA’s lead fundraiser for PA, Dave Messics, just moved over to Judicial Watch about 2 months ago:

    I’m pretty sure Tom Gresham has had a similar request in since the summer.
