When New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s political action committee, Independence USA, spent $12 million last year to campaign against City Council members who opposed gun control and gay marriage, I thought it was pretty neat.
Now it comes back to bite me in the ass.

Suddenly, his throwing his weight around doesn’t seem fair.
