    Rudy Giuliani’s consulting firm was hired in 2002 to help a Florida company build its business under a contract that called for Mr. Giuliani’s firm to be paid in part for lining up work with the federal government and other clients, company records show. Federal law prohibits payment of a commission in return for a federal contract... The deal between the firm and the contractor, Seisint of Boca Raton, was signed with the expectation that Mr. Giuliani’s high profile and connections would help the start-up company obtain federal contracts as well as nongovernment work, said Michael Brauser, co-founder of Seisint...

    NY POST ^ | 7/23/08 | By FREDRIC U. DICKER in Albany and MAGGIE HABERMAN in NY
    Matthew Mahoney, $30,000-a-month executive director of the Senate Republican Campaign Commmittee and one-time head of Giuliani's presidential field operations was relieved of overall responsibility for the NY Senate's GOP campaign and told to concentrate on fund-raising and administrative chores....(rather than pushing the ex-mayor for governor). The demotion was also tied to Giuliani's failure to deliver on pledges to raise substantial amounts of cash for Republican efforts to hold the Senate. Giuliani was supposed to announce the creation of a fund-raising committee to collect cash for the Senate GOP, which some believe is designed to bolster the ex-mayor should he run...

    Hillary and Rudy's campaign similarities are striking. Let us count the ways: BLAME GAME CLINTON Hillary's removal of campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle was disloyal to Hispanics says Steven Ybarra, a California superdelegate (heads voting-rights committee of DNC's Hispanic Caucus).....Clinton is looking for Texas and Ohio Latino voters March 4, and had scored a win with California Hispanics Ybarra said, and the loss of Solis Doyle, a child of Mexican immigrants, just weeks before the Texas primary, where 36% of the population is Hispanic, was "dumb as a stump." GIULIANI Complaints are circulating among Rudy Giuliani's hometown loyalists about his...

    For 50 days, Giuliani had the Sunshine State nearly to himself........he’s sucked up to Miami's Cuban vote, pandered in Cape Canaveral about the space program, tried to scare retirees in South Florida. There he is riding in a fire truck in a Miami parade, trailed by angry firefighters who blame him for multiple failures when NY was attacked.......in the Panhandle, he's the consummate Yankees fan trying to look down-home on the Redneck Riviera. Yet, the more they see of Giuliani, the more his poll numbers tank...... Rudy’s campaign is in meltdown. Amazing how much voters bring up his tawdry personal...
