A police detail for the Mayor's girl-on-the-side?! Really.
"I found it strange that his lady friend was given protection. That was bizarre. She's not the city's responsibility. Rudy is the city's responsibility. Your wife and his children get protection, and that's understood. But certainly not your lady friend."
— Former NYC Mayor Koch, nailing it.
This scandal spells real trouble for Giuliani. I think there's a lot of people on the GOP side who could care less who Rudy was sleeping with. But this is the first time we've seen an intersection of Giuliani's public office and his personal indiscretions.
And it speaks volumes about the man's judgment. It's one thing to have an affair. It's another to make tax payers foot your booty calls.
