That was a VERY good day.
Liberal Party endorsement has been important to Giulianis political success...........The Liberal Party backed Rudy three times for mayor. And Rudy paid back the Liberal Party in spades----he was THAT appreciative.
(1) Mayor Rudy appointed Liberal Party Chairwoman Fran Reiter as Deputy Mayor. Rudy later gave her a $250K city job.
(2) Mayor Rudy gave the two sons of Liberal Party honcho Ray Harding top city jobs.
One Harding brother---Russel---stole the city blind, giving himself unauthorized salary raises, stealing electronic equipment, enjoying gay porn, internet child porn, and traveling with gay friends on the taxpayers' dime.
When Rudy was appraised of Russel's govt fraud, and that Russel was being prosecuted (he is now in jail), Rudy said he "felt bad" for the Harding family (gag).
Rudy never never deviated from the "I-Love-Liberals" drill and dared not utter a discouraging word about the depraved Russel, lest Rudy alienate big buck liberal donors and voters.
Remember voters, a look at Rudy's past is a glimpse into the future.
