It’s been a busy week for Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) group of gun-grabbing mayors.

Ex-San Diego Mayor Filner pleads guilty to felony false imprisonment, battery
(FoxNews) – Former San Diego Mayor Bob Filner pleaded guilty on Tuesday to felony false imprisonment and two misdemeanor counts of battery involving three women, just weeks after he left office amid a storm of sexual harassment allegations.
“This conduct was not only criminal, it was also an extreme abuse of power,” state Attorney General Kamala Harris said in a statement. “This prosecution is about consequence and accountability.”
Filner could have been sentenced to three years in prison for the felony false imprisonment charge. The technical term refers to restraining or otherwise detaining someone against their will — it reaches a “felony” level when violence and other factors come into play.
And then there’s our old friend Kwame Kilpatrick, the former MAIG mayor of Detroit.
He’s going away for almost three decades for malfeasance while he was mayor.

Kilpatrick’s defense attorneys originally had argued that federal prosecutors were overreaching when they recommended he get 28 years – but Judge Nancy Edmunds handed down every minute of it.
“It was a tough sentence but it was a very large crime (and) the punishment met the crime,” said U.S. Attorney Mark Chutkow.
He’ll make someone a good wife.
