Questions of propriety

Ace of Spaces: Are New York City tax-funded resources being used in support of Bloomberg's Mayors  Against Illegal Guns?


Buzz Feed Politics says it confirms the finding that New York city servers are holding the Mayors Against lllegal Guns website:
But Bloomberg spokesman Marc La Vorgna said mayors have the right to decide what is in the best interest of the city and therefore there’s no conflict of interest in the city hosting the group’s website. 
“Whoever is mayor of any city gets to decide what the legislative priorities are of that city on the local, state or federal level,” La Vorgna said.
When Bloomberg's No More Names bus tour, a project of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, rolls into Atlanta on Monday, keep in mind this is an endeavor seeking to lobby Georgia's U.S. senators to fall in line with the anti-gun positions of New York's mayor, and that New York City government resources are at least indirectly involved in trying to sway the positions of Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss.
