Journalists Call Out Bloomberg For Virginia Intrusion

posted on October 28, 2015

Everytown’s massive ad buys in Virginia are aimed at securing two state senate seats that are up for grabs. But two articles in the Washington Post provide strong indications that this unprecedented move isn’t just about propping up anti-gun candidates—it’s about Michael Bloomberg buying his way into Virginia politics. 

According to the Post, Everytown has immediately gone off-message by using one of its ad campaigns to hit a candidate on non-gun-related issues, while dishonestly claiming that it has no hidden agenda. Meanwhile, another article points out that one of the candidates Everytown is dropping money on sounds more like a political opportunist than an anti-gun true believer. One frightening conclusion is that Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy Virginia politicians outright and drive the legislature to the left over the long term. It just goes to show that no matter what the anti-gun group is called, when Bloomberg is involved he’s the one pulling the strings.
