Rudolph Giuliani or Randy Rudy:
Strippers? No way. Mistresses? Okay!
Rudolph Giuliani is at it again. The New York City Mayor is once again
trying to shut down New York City's adult bookstores, peepshows and topless
Rudolph Giuliani: A bit of recent background
Rudolph Giuliani is fighting prostrate cancer. Facing his own mortality,
and understandably also thinking of what type of legacy he will leave,
Giuliani claimed to have come to a new understanding of life's priorities.

protection when Giuliani is not busy squiring her around the City.
Maybe Rudolph Giuliani should spend less time worrying about other men
looking at naked breasts, and more time applying his ostensibly strict moral
standards to himself!
