Michael Bloomberg: Colorado Springs is a roadless Third World backwater

Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York, is still ticked off about the recall of two anti-gun state Senators in Colorado last fall. According to Rolling Stone magazine, Bloomberg stated that pro-recall counties are so rural and primitive they don’t even have roads yet:

Asked about three Colorado Democrats being forced out of office by a recall movement that arose last summer after the legislature’s passage of laws expanding background checks and banning magazines of more than 15 rounds, legislation Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns lobbied hard for, the former mayor said this:

The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get. And, yes, they lost recall elections. I’m sorry for that. We tried to help ‘em. But the bottom line is, the law is on the books, and being enforced. You can get depressed about the progress, but on the other hand, you’re saving a lot of lives.”

[Emphasis added.]

Wait. What?

As Fox 31 in Denver notes, the two cities where the recall took place — Colorado Springs and Pueblo — are not exactly out in the boondocks:

The successful recalls last September occurred in Colorado Springs, the state’s second largest city, and Pueblo, its seventh largest.

As it happens, this post was written from Colorado Springs. Just moments ago, Twitchy’s crack investigative unit snapped the photo below:

Gasp! It’s a road!

Curiously, Rolling Stone has pulled its article, but there is no indication (as yet) that the Bloomberg quote was inaccurate.
