Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau received high praise from the usual suspects in May when she joined the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s embattled group. The Concord Monitor specifically called her out for approval in an editorial attacking Sen. Kelly Ayotte.
But a review conducted by NH Journal shows Mayor Lozeau no longer appears on Bloomberg’s website as a supporter of the organization. The MAIG database shows Dover Mayor Dean Trefethen as the only supporter from the Granite State.
It is unclear at this time if Lozeau distanced herself from the organization after scandal erupted last week when it was learned Bloomberg’s group had been honoring Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev and numerous cop killers and thugs, such as Chris Dorner, as “victims” of gun violence.
The first mayor to publicly quit Bloomberg’s controversial group is Rockford, IL Mayor Larry Morrissey, who left the organization this weekend.
Meanwhile, Dover’s Trefethen is under fire from Republican State Chair Jennifer Horn for himself refusing to drop out of Bloomberg’s group despite the groups support for Tsarnaev and Dorner.
