Everytown For Astroturf

Taking over the Joyce Foundation mission of creating 'grassroots' anti-gun organizations at the state level, Bloomberg's 'Everytown' recently bought out the NCGV name (since it wasn't really a group), and are now setting up organizations in WA and NV under a bunch of front companies
A Who Is domain registry search shows the site registrant is masked through Domains By Proxy, LLC, of Scottsdale, Ariz. The “Nevadans” trying to influence public policy evidently do not want that public to know who they are.
Looking the group up in a Nevada Secretary of State corporation search shows the “Reservation Holder” for the business entity name is one Margaret Rohlfing, who provided an address of “575 7th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20004. That is the address for Venable LLP, the law firm representing Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown in trademark registration. Again, how anyone involved can claim to be a "Nevadan" is not addressed.
So more fake anti-gun groups claiming 'grassroots' w/ no actual members outside of the Washingtons, Lincolns, and Grants on Bloomberg's money. This will keep happening but remember, it's the 'Gun Lobby' who's dumping big money into politics.

Everyone likes Bloomies money. Hell, for the right amount, I'd write a anti-gun screed once a month. Say, 10,000 buck a month. I might even do 2 a month.

Might as well hook a ride on the gravy train.

Wow...those roots run DEEP.
And really far to the east, apparently.
