The tens of millions of dollars that flow into Micheal Bloomberg’s gun control lobby via his direct, personal donations are complimented by millions that he spent for SKDKnickerbocker to make gun control look popular and achievable.

SKDKnickerbocker is a PR firm where managing director Josh Isay has secured victories for Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and been part of Bloomberg’s multi-million dollars gun control campaigns.  

The SKDKnickberbocker website sums up Isay’s work, in part, by saying:

Josh managed Chuck Schumer’s 1998 upset of Al D’Amato and served as Schumer’s first chief of staff in the U.S. Senate. After leaving Sen. Schumer’s office, Josh worked as the head of public affairs for DoubleClick and then co-founded SKDKnickerbocker. …[His] political work includes being a member of President Barack Obama’s direct mail team, Mike Bloomberg’s media and mail team, and the lead media and mail consultant for dozens of governors, mayors, senators, members of Congress and other elected officials.

On October 26 Breitbart News reported that Bloomberg dumped over $50 million into the gun control lobby in the year 2014 alone. Slate reported that this money consisted of a $36 million gift to Everytown for Gun Safety and $16.7 million to “[support] governors who favor tighter gun laws.”

In addition to the $56.7 million, Open Secrets shows that Bloomberg’s Independence PAC paid SKDKnickerbocker $6,816,541 during the 2012 election cycle and $11,659,753in 2016.
