Rudy Giuliani dead in the water?
Wow, I didn’t expect this at all. I’ve been fighting this dark shadow in the GOP for a while now, he troubles me the way President George W. Bush and Dick Cheney have over the years. Now, it looks like the Politico broke a story that will end Rudy Giuliani’s Presidential candidacy. If anything, it’s going to cripple his campaign.
As New York mayor, Rudy Giuliani billed obscure city agencies for tens of thousands of dollars in security expenses amassed during the time when he was beginning an extramarital relationship with future wife Judith Nathan in the Hamptons, according to previously undisclosed government records.
The documents, obtained by Politico under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, show that the mayoral costs had nothing to do with the functions of the little-known city offices that defrayed his tabs, including agencies responsible for regulating loft apartments, aiding the disabled and providing lawyers for indigent defendants.
At the time, the mayor’s office refused to explain the accounting to city auditors, citing “security.”
The Hamptons visits resulted in hotel, gas and other costs for Giuliani’s New York Police Department security detail.
Is this something Rudy is capable of spinning?
Here’s the entire article at Politico: “Giuliani billed obscure agencies for trips.“
