11. Bloomberg's independent not dem

johnston: so she is OK with a billionaire {bloomberg} in New York This is the same guy that supported Scott Brown over Warren.

Bloomberg is not a democrat but an independent, altho he certainly seems a de facto dem with some 'veiled' support (imo) for republican issues, as well as some sincere support for both/all sides.

One of Bloomberg's propaganda mailers in California falsely claimed that the candidate supported "supported convicted sex offenders and felons getting CCWs"

.. the nra does support this, as well as reinstating 'gun rights' to ex cons & ex felons who did their time, excepting for violent crimes as attd murder, rape, robb & asslt, and even those a plea bargain out or dismissal on tech is OK with nra to give the guys guns again. So why do you claim it was a false? because the nra told you so?
.. as far as bloomberg support of brown not warren, here's why (tho boo, bloomy, brown still a gunnut):

Mr. Bloomberg -- endorsement was about his desire to reward Mr. Brown for voting against his party and the National Rifle Association on a gun control measure. Mr. Brown has generally received high ratings from gun rights organizations and has not pushed for renewing a federal assault-weapons ban or for tightening restrictions on gun shows.. the mayor had been won over {er, suckered in imo} by the senator’s “tough stand” opposing a measure that would have required states to honor concealed-weapons permits issued by other states.
“The biggest reason the mayor is supporting Senator Brown is the senator’s help on one of our biggest gun issues: opposing concealed-carry reciprocity that would let people with gun permits from rural states like Arkansas and Kentucky carry hidden handguns in New York City,'

Other ways to say 'Thanks!' Mayor B, than supporting an nra A student, rather than a Brady Campaign A student. IMO, the mayor spit in the face of guncontrol for a friendly smile. Eliz Warren a bigger guncontrol fan with more than a smile, a good head on her shoulders.
