OOPS! I meant America’s crook!
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.”
Now where have we heard of people getting rich by claiming “security” before? Could that be the Iraq War? I believe so (see Halliburton). Republicans care nothing about security. Their only concern is their own financial gains. I don’t seriously know how anyone can believe them anymore.
