Rudy Giuliani Watch: Rudy Quits Iraq Study Group to Make Money?

Cross Posted from the FullosseousFlap's Dental Blog


Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani greets supporters at a Houston restaurant Tuesday, June 19, 2007.

Newday had this “HIT” piece earier in the day implying that Rudy would rather make money than be on the Iraq Study Group.

Well, since the Iraq Study Group issued a POS report that was largely ignored by the President, Flap thinks he would have done the same.

But, that wasn’t why Rudy quit.

The pushbck from Hizzoner is here:

Said a Giuliani campaign official:

“Once again, the paper wrote a story with little regard to the facts. The facts are these - as someone considered a potential presidential candidate, the Mayor didn’t want the group’s work to become a political football. That, coupled with time constraints, led to his decision.”

The sensitivity — as demonstrated by the shot at a news organization — reflects the danger of the story. It’s not just that he missed two sessions of the panel, but that he did so because he was giving paid speeches.

Or, as Newsday puts it in newspaper-ese, “By giving up his seat on the panel, Giuliani has opened himself up to charges that he chose private-sector paydays and politics over unpaid service on a critical issue facing the nation.”

In fairness to Rudy, though, many of us in the press probably would have been squawking about conflict-of-interest matters had he stayed on the panel through December, by which point his presidential ambitions had become obvious.

So, BFD for nothing.

Gad, anything for a story.


As if this wasn’t a bad enough day for Rudy.

When the good news is that you lose your Iowa campaign chair to the OMB, you know you had a bad day. But how bad?

So bad that your South Carolina campaign chair is indicted for conspiring to peddle crack cocaine?

So bad you come in 2nd in your first poll of the cycle?

A pretty bad day!

Another Giuliani State Campaign Chair Indicted

"From me I could not make this up if I tried files, the South Carolina chair of the Giuliani 2008 campaign was indicted today on charges of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. Now was less than a week ago that we reported that Rudy Giuliani’s Pennsylvania chairman had a long history as a felon. I’m starting to think that Rudy Giuliani has more criminals in his sphere of influence than George Bush had. While I know that Rudy Giuliani actually getting elected president is a long shot, I can only imagine what his cabinet would look like, he would probably be the only president in history that would have to pardon someone before nominating them."

Yes, I know, "guilt by association", but it seems fitting that the criminal Giuliani would keep such company.
