How MAIG Seems to Operate

There’s a mayor in Freedom, New Mexico that seems surprised, maybe even a little indignant, that NRA is saying he’s a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.  But in an article today by the Portales News-Tribune, Rachel Parsons from NRA says something pretty interesting:

Parsons, who works at the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Va., said several other mayors across the country also have told her organization that they attended an MAIG event and were put on the membership roster although they never signed up to join.

So it would seem that Bloomberg’s group is signing mayors up for the political equivalent of saying “hi,” and then signing their names to statements promoting gun control.  That’s going to turn into a liability for MAIG quickly if word gets out.

  1. Huh. I guess they stole a page from the Brady Campaign what with the majority of their “members” just being signed up on their email list…

  2. I can’t beleive that Washington is the only state that has laws againt claiming endorsements that do not exist!

    There has to be a way to prosecute this.
