Bloomberg spreading cash around

Apparently the $50 million Bloomberg spent creating gun control astroturf was only the beginning.

According to the New York Times, “Bloomberg’s Next Anti-Washington Move: $200 Million Program for Mayors“:

Michael R. Bloomberg will throw his financial might into helping beleaguered American mayors, creating a $200 million philanthropic program aimed at backing inventive policies at the city level and giving mayors a stronger hand in national politics … In an interview, Mr. Bloomberg said his city-focused initiative would serve in part as an extension of his advocacy for national policies that address climate change, gun violence, public health and immigration … As a political donor, he has made gun control his central cause, with mixed electoral success …”

His gun control funding didn’t produce much results, but through sheer volume, there’s a good chance he will get something in return for this.
