There must be some cruelly ironic joke being played on New York City’s hurricane-soaked residents. As thousands of New Yorkers still sit in the dark, unarmed, vulnerable, and worried about looters, the Big Apple’s billionaire mayor is sending $1.1 million to Florida to buy ads for union-bought, gun-control advocate and congressional candidate Val Demings.
With only days before the election, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is targeting U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Winter Garden, with $1.1 million in TV ads — a surprise move that could upend a House race that’s already the most competitive in Central Florida.
The $1.1 million ad buy, made through Bloomberg’s political action committee Independence USA, nearly equals the $1.2 million that Webster has raised this entire campaign. And it adds to the massive amount of outside help that Demings already has gotten this cycle, including $1.5 million spent by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for its own TV ads.
Although Democrat Demings is Orlando’s former chief of police and carries a concealed weapon in her purse, she received an ‘F’ rating from the National Rifle Association.
Ironically, in 2009, demonstrating her own lack of gun control, Democrat Demings had her department-issued gun stolen from her car.
Orlando police Chief Val Demings received a written censure after her gun was stolen from her unmarked department vehicle that was parked outside her million dollar home in February.The gun has been missing for almost two months and Crimeline has received zero tips. There is a sergeant and a detective on the case, but so far nothing.
After a six-week internal investigation, Orlando Police Chief Val Demings will receive disciplinary action for having her gun stolen, but all she will get is a written censure (read censure). Citizens say the penalty seems light.
Demings left her gun, three magazines and handcuffs in her SUV. It was parked outside of her $1.3 million home. Demings said she used her remote control to lock the vehicle, but investigators found she violated policy because she did not physically check to see if the doors were locked.
In addition to Bloomberg’s million dollar ad buy, Democrat Demings has also raked in campaign contributions from more than a dozen unions.
As looters begin to prey on New York’s residents, it’s a shame that they don’t have the same rights as Florida’s citizens currently have to protect their lives and property.
However, if Michael Bloomberg has his way, the next time a hurricane ravishes Florida, Floridians may be just as vulnerable as New Yorkers are to the vermin who loot in times of crisis.
