FLASHBACK: Senator Giron Said Mayors Against Illegal Guns Should “Fold Up” If She Lost

In a case of confidence gone awry, now former Senator Angela Giron told the New Republic in August that if either her or Senate President John Morse lost their seats, then Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns “might as well fold up.”

Angela Giron, one of two Colorado state senators who is up for a recall election on Sept. 10 as a result of voting for new gun restrictions earlier this year, did not hesitate when I asked her over the weekend what the recall meant for New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and the rest of the national gun-control movement.

“For Mayors Against Illegal Guns, if they lose even one of these seats, they might as well fold it up. And they understand that,” she said.

Indeed they do. Reports filed Tuesday night with the Colorado Secretary of State show that Bloomberg has donated $350,000 to one of several groups fighting against the recall.

Both Morse and Giron lost.

Your move, Mayor Bloomberg.
