Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani – now running for the US presidency – has
come under pressure to explain why a massive bill for his security was hidden in
obscure accounts during his term as mayor.
The bills for tens of thousands of dollars are, in addition, alleged to have
been sent to city agencies such as New York City Loft Board and Office for
People with Disabilities instead of being sent to the accountants of the city’s
police, who usually had the responsibility over his security.
Further questions have been raised around the timing of the security services
– between 1999 and 2001 – which coincide with the period during which Giuliani
had an extra-martial affair with Judy Nathan at an exclusive resort in the
Hamptons, the Telegraph reported.
Giuliani has so far denied the allegations.
