The name â€œMayors Against Illegal Gunsâ€ is well known as Mike Bloombergâ€™s gun-control arm, which he spends his personal fortune through on ads. Yet the groupâ€™s website is registered to, and handled by, official city government servers and staffers.
Domain names for MAIG were registered in 2006 by the New York City Department of Information and Technology, and have remained on official city web servers ever since.
Yet the groupâ€™s â€œaction fund,â€ through which he has piped at least $14 million of his own money in ads over gun control this year alone, is registered as a 501c4, a nonprofit â€œsocial welfareâ€ group with the same tax status as, say, the Karl Rove-linked Crossroads GPS or Organizing for Action, President Obamaâ€™s grassroots arm. And it raises questions about why a website associated with the group is being managed by City Hall.
In fact, the various pieces of the mayorâ€™s efforts appear as a confusing muddle online, with sites that are ostensibly not part of the 501c4 nonetheless being visually dominated by entreaties to click through to the ones that are. Thereâ€™s little indication that these are different entities with different oversight.
