Bloomberg’s lobbyist Adam Eichberg firing a gun he sought to ban while at Senator Greg Brophy’s annual watermelon shoot.
Michael Bloomberg’s personal lobbyist Adam “Machine Gun” Eichberg penned an email explaining away the major losses of Angela Giron and John Morse on Tuesday, and lamenting the fact that liberal legislation will have a harder time passing because of it.
In the email, Eichberg makes some startling admissions, including the fact that trial lawyers made “sizable” contributions to the pro-Morse and Giron efforts.
Also in the email, Eichberg hopes that Senate Majority Leader Morgan Carroll, an ambulance chaser herself, ascends to Senate President, but acknowledges there are other Democratic Senators with their eyes on the top prize.
When it comes to excuse making for the loss, Eichberg throws out everything but the kitchen sink, claiming civil unions and the ASSET bill to provide in-state tuition to children of illegal immigrants were partially responsible. Nothing could be further from the truth. The ads against Giron focused on their arrogance, support of Bloomberg’s gun bill, ethical troubles and vote for a bill that will jack up rural energy rates.
But nice try, Adam.
What isn’t acknowledged is that it was Eichberg’s lobbying on Bloomberg’s behalf that begat these recalls in the first place.
UPDATE: A reader writes in to note that Eichberg’s lobbying for Bloomberg ended up costing his other client – the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) – dearly. Heckuva job, Eichy.
