Revisiting Donna Hanover's statement (end of marriage)

From NYT, May 11, 2000. THE NYT archives are a treasure trove documenting St. Rudy of 9-11's abandonment of his wife and 2 children (the kids are nowehere to be found in his campaign site bio) and extra-marital activities. Archive access Times Select members only, unfortunately for me.

Like it or not, I believe Rudy will be their nominee. Like it or not, he will be very tough to beat. Let's see if the party that impeached a Dem prez over a bl*wjob will support a Repub serial adulterer who threw away his family for his lady "friend".

Following is the text of Donna Hanover's statement, delivered yesterday outside Gracie Mansion, regarding her marital problems with Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, as recorded by The Associated Press:

Today's turn of events brings me great sadness. I had hoped that we could keep this marriage together.

For several years it was difficult to participate in Rudy's public life because of his relationship with one staff member. Beginning last May, I made a major effort to bring us back together. Rudy and I re-established some of our personal intimacy through the fall. At that point he chose another path.

Rudy and I will now discuss the possibility of a legal separation. Because of security concerns, for at least the next few months the children and I will remain living at Gracie. I thank all of the people who have sent me their love, and I will have no further remarks today.

1. where are the CHILDREN?

Rudy's campaign site bio (does he HAVE children?) :sarcasm:

Early Years

Rudolph W. Giuliani was born in 1944 to a working class family in Brooklyn, New York. As the grandson of Italian immigrants, Rudy was taught the value of a strong work ethic and a deep respect for America's ideal of equal opportunity. He attended Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, Manhattan College, and New York University Law School.

After joining the office of the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Rudy rose quickly through the ranks, becoming the Chief of the Narcotics Unit at age 29. In 1975, Rudy was recruited to work in Washington, D.C., and was appointed Associate Deputy Attorney General and chief of staff to the Deputy Attorney General. In 1977, Rudy returned to New York to the private practice of law.

The Crime Fighter

After the inauguration of Ronald Reagan in 1981, Rudy was named Associate Attorney General, the third highest position in the Department of Justice. He supervised all of the U.S. Attorney Offices and their federal law enforcement agencies, including the Bureau of Corrections, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the U.S. Marshals.

In 1983, Rudy became United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, where he spearheaded successful efforts against organized crime, white collar criminals, drug dealers and corrupt elected officials. Some of his best known cases include the groundbreaking mafia prosecutions in the "Pizza Connection" and "The Commission" cases, Wall Street corruption cases, and the convictions of corrupt political figures. Few U.S. Attorneys in history can match his record.

Mayor of New York

In 1993, Rudy became the first Republican elected Mayor of the City of New York in a generation. Campaigning on the slogan "One City, One Standard," he focused on reducing crime, reforming welfare and improving the quality of life. In 1997, he was re-elected with nearly 60% in a city in which Democrats outnumber Republicans five to one.

Under Mayor Giuliani's leadership, overall crime was cut by 57%, murder was cut by nearly 70%, and New York City - once considered the crime capital of the country - was recognized by the F.B.I. as the safest large city in America. New York City's law enforcement strategy has become a model for other cities around the world, particularly the CompStat program, which won the 1996 Innovations in Government Award from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

When Mayor Giuliani took office, one of every seven New Yorkers was on welfare. Mayor Giuliani implemented the largest and most successful welfare-to-work initiative in the country, turning welfare offices into Job Centers, leading to the reduction of welfare rolls by 640,000, or nearly 60%, to the lowest level since 1966.

Mayor Giuliani also took decisive steps to restore fiscal responsibility to New York City, reducing or eliminating 23 city taxes while turning an inherited $2.3 billion budget deficit into a multi-billion dollar surplus. These reforms helped lead New York City to an era of broad-based growth, with approximately 425,000 new private sector jobs created in eight years, as business returned to the center of city life. As news of the New York renaissance spread around the nation and the world, tourism grew to record levels. Under Rudy Giuliani's leadership, New York City became the best-known example of the resurgence of urban America.

On September 11th, 2001, America suffered the worst attack in its history. After surviving the fall of the Towers, Mayor Giuliani immediately began leading the recovery of his city as it faced its darkest hour.

For his efforts, former first lady Nancy Reagan presented Mayor Giuliani with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Freedom Award, he was knighted by the Queen of England, and named Person of the Year by Time magazine. In 2002, he wrote and published a number one best-seller, Leadership, which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

Business Leader

Limited by New York City law to two terms as mayor, Rudy founded Giuliani Partners in January, 2002, quickly establishing the consulting firm as a leader in the fields of emergency preparedness, public safety, crisis management, energy and health care. Rudy subsequently expanded his business reach into the boutique investment banking sector with Giuliani Capital Advisors. In 2005, Rudy became a name partner in the law firm of Bracewell & Giuliani. The sixty year old firm, previously known as Bracewell Patterson, has over 400 attorneys practicing in nine offices around the world.

In May of 2003, Rudy married Judith S. Nathan. Mrs. Giuliani is a registered nurse with an extensive medical and scientific background. She currently serves as Managing Director of Changing Our World, Inc., a national fundraising and philanthropic services company headquartered in New York. In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Mrs. Giuliani coordinated the efforts at the Family Assistance Center on Pier 94. She was also a founding member of the Board of Trustees of the Twin Towers Fund, which raised and distributed $216 million to over 600 families and individuals.

In 2006, Mrs. Giuliani was awarded New York University College of Nursings Humanitarian Award in recognition of using her nursing identity for humanitarian work and charitable endeavors as well as for being a powerful voice that enhances the visibility of nursing and elevates the profession. Also in 2006, Mrs. Giuliani received the St. Francis Xavier Cabrini Service Award from Mother Cabrini High School, an award honoring her commitment to young women and their education.
