[The shocking report below is presumably only the first of a number of to come on Giuliani’s profitable turn to defending borderline crooked operations.  An article last month listed a number of them.  This is presumably only the first — which does not mention that the young federal prosecutor who defeated Giuliani in this case was fired two weeks later.

What really gets to us New Yorkers who experienced him are Giuliani’s boasts that he was somehow our super star.  He was not.  He did not prepare us for 9/11.  He left the city in financial trouble.  He hired crooks for high offices here.  He messed up after 9/11, leaving many thousands with damaged lungs in the clean up of the “pile” and threatened them with legal retaliation if they complained.  He is not a very nice guy.  Like father, like son.  Ed Kent]
