Did The Citizens of New York Pay To Protect Rudy Giuliani’s Affair?

It sure seems that way. The Politico reports that during the period of time when Rudy Giuliani allegedly struck up an extra-marital affair with future wife Judith Nathan, he billed obscure city agencies for tens of thousands of dollars in extra security — security which seems to have been used to ensure the then-mayor’s…ahem…privacy while he was wooing Judith in the Hamptons. Scandal like this always brings to mind the hullabaloo over Clinton’s dalliance with Monica Lewinsky and his subsequent lie about it. (“I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”) While some had a serious problem with Clinton’s philandering, others were simply turned off by the fact that he would lie about it while under oath. But how does this political/sexual scandal rate on your meter? Do you have a problem voting for a candidate who has cheated? Do you not care what happens in a candidates personal life so long as they’re a solid leader? Or does any impropriety — cheating, lying, misuse of city funds — affect your ability to vote for a candidate? Discuss how you feel about Giuliani’s shady dealings after the jump! [The Politico]
