The group that is organizing to defend Senate President John Morse is semi-humorously named “A Whole Lot of People For John Morse.”
Wanna guess which of the whole lotta people who like John Morse like him most?
Three words…Mayor. Bloom. Berg.
A campaign finance report filed yesterday for the Morse front group shows that it’s being pretty much single-handedly funded by a national liberal organization — America Votes. The organization, which gave at least $20,000, is a collective of pretty much every left-wing special interest group in the country, from enviros to Big Labor to trial lawyers.
And Bloomberg has given big to those partner organizations.
Last year he gave $250,000 to Planned Parenthood. He’s also funded a bevy of other America Votes partners such as the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and the Sierra Club Independent Action.
It’s impossible to tell how much Bloomberg might have given directly to America Votes, as it’s a 501(c)4 organization that doesn’t have to disclose its donors, but it’s undeniable Bloomberg has given big bucks to the groups that form the backbone of America Votes.
Between A Whole Lot of People for John Morse’s filing agent calling Colorado Springs a “right-wing, religious whack-job stronghold” and the Bloomberg cash pouring into the state, it’s becoming clear that it’s not John Morse’s constituents that are coming to his rescue, but special interest gun grabbers intent on protecting those that did their bidding.
