Giuliani’s Hanky-Panky: On the Public Tab?

Love don’t cost a thing?  Rudy and Judy get romantic on the helipad.

During the early days of his romance with his girlfriend (now wife) Judith, then New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani made trips to the Hamptons, where she lived, and billed “obscure city agencies” for costs his NYPD security detail incurred while accompanying him, according to The Politico.


The Politico:

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.

Giuliani’s relationship with Nathan is old news now, and Giuliani regularly asks voters on the campaign trail to forgive his “mistakes.”

It’s also impossible to know whether the purpose of all the Hamptons trips was to see Nathan. A Giuliani spokeswoman declined to discuss any aspect of this story, which was explained in detail to her earlier this week.

I think it’s refreshing to see a Republican with a healthy libido.  Not that I would vote for him of course.

And this is the person whom Pat Robertson is giving the thumbs up to. What an absolute loser and dishonest person Rudi has so far proven to be. Such moral integrity these Republicans keep claiming,yet I have not seen it. This is the prime example of what we do not need to represent this country.It’s time for Rudi to call it quits.

Giulian’s problems with women began when he divorced his 2nd cousin.When he could not find anyone else in the family to hook up with and he started to marry outside the family he started messing up.Rudy listen to me drop Judith have a family reunion and find a relative who fits your needs.Remember The Giuliani family motto"Incest:A game the whole family can play”.
