Giuliani’s Hanky-Panky: On the Public Tab?
Posted on Nov 28, 2007
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 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.
