NYC Mayor Bloomberg Is HRC’s Alleged Marriage Equality Advocate. Who’s Helping Elect Meg Whitman

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who the Human Rights Campaign lined up to star in its NY marriage equality videos, and who Richard Socarides keeps defending as a LGBT rights advocate despite Bloomberg’s suing to block same-sex marriage recognition, will join Meg Whitman in California to help campaign for a fellow billionaire who has made no secret of her disdain for letting gays steal the word “marriage.” The move is is fitting: Bloomberg, who spent $110 million of his own cash to be re-elected for a third mayoral term, was just beat by Whitman’s self-funding record of $119 million, and billionaires don’t let billionaire friends campaign alone.
