New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been hit with two suits this week, one demanding information on his anti-gun campaign, and the other targeting his soda and fat bans.
Both are Freedom of Information lawsuits from Washington groups that charge the mayor's office with delaying release of critical information about his efforts to start a national campaign to limit guns and boost the health value of food sold in cities.
The public watchdog group Judicial Watch on Thursday filed their suit demanding emails between Bloomberg's office, his group Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Vice President Biden. The group charges that the anti-gun lobbying effort is being funded in part by taxpayers.
Also this week, the group Keep Food Legal sued for information providing the basis for the mayor's restrictive food laws. The group also wants information backing up the city's plan to limit salt or sodium in foods; restrict tavern licenses and happy hours; adopt so-called Meatless Mondays,' and crack down on food trucks.
Nanny State PING!
I hope he has to eat cold beans the rest of his life with no salt or seasonings, and drinks lemonade with no sweetner or sugar of any kind.
The guy is worth about 31,000 million dollars, he’s experienced his power trip as mayor, so, he has nothing left to do but meddle.
Thanks for the ping!
Note to self, throw some $ to Judicial Watch!
The next gun I buy here in free America. I’m naming Mike in his honor.
It would save a lot of time and effort if someone would juyst sue him for being an overbearing *sshole.
But, then, everyone in congress and in the White House would be culpable, too.
I had thought he was worth $4B or $5B.....didn’t know it was that high!
