GIULIANI HANKY PANKY?
Some people were not surprised that Democratic candidate Dr. Carl Perrin was suspected of some, let’s say, extracurricular trips to Maine on taxpayer dollars. The former English professor, after all, is a sophisticated man of the world.
What is hard to believe is that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, thrice-married Catholic, may have been involved in some hanky panky himself, at taxpayer expense. While he was mayor, Giuliani charged tens of thousands of dollars to various city agencies for trips to such places as the Hamptons, where he was evidently meeting Judith Nathan. One of the agencies charged was that which was responsible for loft apartments, like the apartment where Giuliani appointee Bernard Kerik had his own little fling with Judith Regan.
City auditors who questioned the expenses were told that the details couldn’t be revealed because of “security” reasons. At the time of these trips Rudy was having a little fling with Judith Nathan, who became his third wife.
