...you pompous elitist. It has come to my attention that the Super PAC you created and likely control, Independence USA, has just spent $2.3 MILLION FREAKING DOLLARS on T.V. advertising to influence a congressional election in a neighboring district.This is on top of the approx. $365,000 that your PAC spent on direct mailings for the same race.
While I acknowledge your right to express your opinion and to support political candidates that might further your personal agenda, I resent your attempt to influence who represents Southern California in the U.S. House of Representatives. You see Mr. Bloomberg, we live in the Inland Empire, which I am sure you are aware is just about as far as you can get from New York City, without getting on an airplane or a boat and still staying within the U.S. Our congressman should represent us and our interests, not you.
I'm just guessin' that the donations which made the PAC's purchase possible occurred very late in the election cycle. If true, Independence USA will not have to disclose the source of their funding until after the election. I am quite sure that is by design. As the amount of money you are throwing around is quite large, I am also confident that you and maybe a few other multi-bajillionares are the main funding sources for the PAC. So much for transparency.
And people are upset that unions donate money to candidates.
I am told that the main reason for your interference in our congressional race is your personal opposition to the private ownership and use of firearms. Again, as misguided as your personal beliefs are, you have a right to them. However, your actions prove to me that as you have a nearly unlimited supply of money you feel that you should make the rules, screw everybody else.
Due to our states quirky election laws, both of the viable candidates in the 35th are members of the Democratic Party. Gun control appears to be the main issue separating the two candidates, you have chosen to support the candidate who favors more restrictions on my right to defend myself than the other. Why else would you support a candidate from a district all the way across the country?
Should you ever want to discuss this important issue or discuss your motivation to why you want to buy our election, please feel free to drop by. You can contact me through this BLOG. While I can pretty much guarantee you won't change my mind, or I yours, I can definitely guarantee that you will get a good meal out of the deal, civil conversation and a good brew or two. Who knows, I may even break out the good Canadian Whiskey.
Then, we could really talk.
Sorry for the rant, but I am fired up. when I first saw the TV ads, I wondered why so much money was being spent on the LA TV market when the 35th CA Congressional district only covers part of the Inland Empire and the Pomona Valley. Now I know - they had it to spend.
Thanks for enduring,
