Women Vote! The PAC arm of the pro-choice group Emily’s list just received a $2 million donation from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. While he has given a substantial amount in the past to the group, this is the largest donation  for the organization on record for Bloomberg, who has also been advocating in behalf of gun control and a crackdown on domestic violence.
