Antigun official in hot water
Miami police chief John Timoney is in hot water. Again. The latest allegations are that he accepted free use of a luxury vehicle from a car dealership, while also drawing an allowance from the city for use of a personal car. The FOP, which doesn't care much for him, is calling for a vote of no confidence. (One of the things that may have them upset is that he reportedly fired a female officer for being married to a convicted felon, conflict of interest and all that, while he keeps his own job despite his son being a convicted felon).
He was pretty much a Brady Campaign poster boy. He endorsed Brady Campaign's opposition to liberalizing self-defense, calling it "unnecessary and dangerous", proclaimed that if the assault weapon ban expired, "We will see a return to the horrific violence that plagued our streets during the late 1980s and early 1990s.”", etc. (last file is a small pdf).
