GIULIANI CAUGHT RED-HANDED IN FRAUDULENT BILLING FOR PRE-9-11 TRIPS TO SEE NATHAN! SMOKING LINKS!
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 05:29 PM by Dems Will Win


Hoo boy! Rudolph has finally been caught red-handed, the investigation has already started, and it's similar to the Kerik case in that funding to carry out affairs was gotten illegally.

Here are the SMOKING LINKS: http://www.politico.com/static/PPM43_071128_giulianiame...
http://www.politico.com/static/PPM43_071128_comptroller...

Damn! They have him dead to rights, it looks like. He charged personal trips to Nathan to obscure and improper agencies. $620,000 over 2 years for non-local trips (some of which might be legal but most charged to the Loft Board and that huge $400,000 charge for Administrative Counsel!!). And he was seeing Nathan every weekend just before 9-11. Wasn't he supposed have been working on terrorism, like he said?

PASS THE POPCORN!


Giuliani billed obscure agencies for trips
By: Ben Smith
November 28, 2007 03:32 PM EST

But American Express bills and travel documents obtained by Politico suggest another reason City Hall may have considered the documents sensitive: They detail three summers of visits to Southampton, the Long Island town where Nathan had an apartment.

Auditors "were unable to verify that these expenses were for legitimate or necessary purposes," City Comptroller William Thompson wrote of the expenses from fiscal year 2000, which covers parts of 1999 and 2000.

...

"There is no really good reason to do this except to have nobody know about it," Carol O'Cleireacain, a Brookings Institution senior fellow who was budget director under Giuliani's predecessor, David Dinkins, said of the unusual billing practices.

A Giuliani spokeswoman, Sunny Mindel, declined to comment on any aspect of the travel documents or the billing arrangements.

A Giuliani aide who would speak only on the condition of anonymity denied that the unorthodox billing practices were aimed at hiding the expenses, citing "accounting" and noting that they were billed to units of the mayor's office, not to outside city agencies.

The aide declined to discuss Giuliani's visits to Long Island.



The trips themselves were a departure for a mayor who had prided himself on spending every waking moment in the city and on the job, and offer a glimpse into the dramatic and controversial finale to his tenure in office.

Receipts show him in Southampton every weekend in August and the first weekend in September of 2001, before the terror attacks of Sept. 11 disrupted the routines of his city.

Both the travel expenses and the appearance that his office made efforts to conceal them could open Giuliani to criticism that his personal life spilled over into his official duties and his expenses grew in his final years in office.

It is impossible to say which of the 11 Long Island trips indicated by credit card receipts were to visit Nathan and which were for other purposes.

ht of those trips, however, were not noted on Giuliani's official scheduleich is now available in the city's municipal archive and contains many details of Giuliani's official and unofficial life.

...

A spokesman for Bloomberg, Stu Loeser, said: "When we received the letter from the comptroller, we referred the matter to the Department of Investigations, as we would in any case like this."

A spokeswoman for the Department of Investigations declined to comment.

Remember to recommend to get this story out there and let people see thos SMOKING LINKS! This will likely blow Rudolph out of the water in New Hampshire and South Carolina and maybe across the nation...

12. Don't forget about Rudy's Love Shack!
http://www.firedoglake.com/2007/08/12/love-shack-securi... /

The mayor was so personally focused on the siting and construction of the bunker that the city administrator who oversaw it testified in a subsequent lawsuit that very senior officials, specifically including Giuliani, were involved, which he said was a major difference between this and other projects. Giulianis office had a humidor for cigars and mementos from City Hall, including a fire horn, police hats and fire hats, as well as monogrammed towels in his bathroom. His suite was bulletproofed and he visited it often, even on weekends, bringing his girlfriend Judi Nathan there long before the relationship surfaced.


So you see, he was just saving the city money by making sure his love shack was within walking distance.

69. Ah yes, the "Nut Shell"
Edited on Thu Nov-29-07 12:47 PM by KamaAina
so named by a caller to WABC's Curtis & Kuby program (Curtis Sliwa: rather slow-witted Guardian Angel and righty; Ron Kuby: civil rights attorney and outright Communist!).

When the "Nut Shell" was first built, Rudy's paramour was one Cristyne Lategano, his own communications director!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controversies_of_Rudy_Giul...

Beginning in 1996, Giuliani and Hanover's public relationship became distant, with Hanover appearing at few public events. In 1997, a Vanity Fair article reported that Giuliani had a romantic relationship with Cristyne Lategano, the mayor's communications director. The mayor and Lategano denied the allegations. On Father's Day, 1995 Giuliani had told reporters that he was returning to Gracie Mansion to play ball with Andrew. However, he instead went to City Hall, to a basement suite with his press secretary. Three hours later, Hanover, angered, appeared at City Hall; yet a mayoral aide prevented her from entering the suite.

What a shocker: the communications director ended up on the list of vital city officials who would be summoned to the "Nut Shell" in case of emergency. Or as one of the hosts put it, "I knew it! Lategano gets to go!"

43. The digital final summary should be appearing in an editorial cartoon...
...any time now...

Rudy's balloon reads, "9-11."

The generic auditor character -- wearing the old-fashioned accountant's visor, with the elastic garters on the sleeves of his pinstripe shirt -- replies, "6-2-0h-0h-0h-0h."

47. It would be ironic
if rudy's lust for judy blew his chances at the 11th hour when sneaking around in Gracie Mansion with judy didn't hold him down to get this far in our collective face.

51. The Perfect Republican Ticket
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 11:11 PM by Baby Snooks
If Guiliani wins the nomination and chooses Rick Perry, the governor of "Bush's" Texas, you will have the political equivalent of Love Canal.

58. With the gay general flap, Giuliani doesn't need to be worried.
Nobody's going to talk about this tomorrow.

64. Only in bizarro world
You don't seem to get the overall direction of Giuliani's weakness -- namely, that he actually is deeply connected to criminal activities while portraying himself as a crime fighter.

Do you really think that in the context of the Kerik flap, Giuliani's misuse of public funds just disappears?

Sorry, but that's just pure unadulterated poo.

72. One can always hope
The way and manner that the media covers things like this is best described as a bizarro world.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

I'll be REALLY stunned if it turns out Chicago's City Hall is corrupt as well!

67. I wish this shit could remain under wraps until the general elections
I would love nothing more than to see Giuliani be the neocon nominee.

73. I keep saying, his poll numbers would go down quickly
People will not like the baggage and unlikable personality he has. I'm not worried about Giuliani.

76. This is the Magic Bullet
Let's not just hope the media does it's job. We need to keep this story in the public's face. Bring it up everywhere you can. If you post on a sports board, a gaming forum, if you belong to a book club or a knitting circle, drop a reference into the conversation. Talk about it loudly on the street, in the check out line, at the barber shop. Write letters to the editor of your local paper, call the talk shows, comment on every news blog you can find.

Rudy Giuliani is probably the most dangerous man in America. We HAVE to take him down. Not that we've been given the opportunity, we can't let it go by.

82. What I love is how CNN's article about this talks only about $34K worth of expenditures, the amount
from 2002, repeatedly uses the 34K figure and you have to dig deep into the article before the rest of the money from 2000-2001, which brings us up to 500K-ish, is even mentioned. It's almost as if they're trying to help Rudy out a bit or something. Fuck them with a 50 foot long pine cone.
