No More Nanny? No More Mumbles?
What in the world is Mayors Against Illegal Guns going to do next year?
Their more well-known co-chair, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is term limited and can't run again for mayor of New York City. Meanwhile, his erstwhile co-chairman, Mayor Thomas "Mumbles" Menino, announced yesterday he won't be running for a sixth term.
Given that the whole organization runs on Bloomberg's money, I wouldn't be surprised if they gave Bloomberg some sort of honorary title like Chairman Emeritus and let him continue to run the organization behind the scenes.
As to Mumbles, unlike many of his other mayors, at least he won't be spending his retirement in prison.
