Rudy Wasn’t Doing It Just to Judith
He was doing it to the City of New York.
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 expenses first surfaced…in 2001, when a city auditor stumbled across something unusual: $34,000 worth of travel expenses buried in the accounts of the New York City Loft Board.
C’mon! If you’re mayor of New York, don’t you have to spend time in the Hamptons?
…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….auditors found…$10,054 billed to the Office for People with Disabilities and $29,757 to the Procurement Policy Board….The next year, yet another obscure department, the Assigned Counsel Administrative Office, was billed around $400,000 for travel.
And this is EARLY 2001. No way the reason given can be “9/11.”
At the time, the mayor’s office refused to explain the accounting to city auditors, citing “security.
Perhaps he’ll say: “It’s a good thing I had that security. It was right before 9/11.”
It’s also impossible to know whether the purpose of all the Hamptons trips was to see Nathan.
True, maybe the Yankees had an away game.Click here for reuse options!
