Laugh Out Loud: Mayor Bloomberg Finances Anti-Gun Dem In... Chicago! February 24, 2013

New York City's Mayor Bloomberg is financing a candidate in a Chicago Democratic primary who is a gun control advocate. And he is financing that candidate specifically because she is a gun control advocate.

Because gun control has worked so well in Chicago.

One of the key players in a special Democratic congressional primary Tuesday in Chicago comes from New York.

That city's mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg, is using his vast wealth to challenge a candidate running on a gun rights platform in the first election since the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. - a move that underscores his crusade to serve as a political counterweight to the National Rifle Assn.

No word yet as to whether or not Bloomberg will put money into Solyndra, because he's certain that company is bound to be a success.
