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.

  1. …which is why I don’t understand why people seem to like to vote for rich men. Why don’t we hear the question “who suffered to make you rich?” asked of them when they run for elected office? (And no, getting paid huge consulting fees by other robber barons doesn’t wash the blood and sweat of others off the money.)
