Kerik Approved "Security" Detail For Rudy's Girlfriend's Family

Via Kagro, it gets worse:

[Rudy Giuliani's then- girlfriend when he was married to Donna Hanover, Judi] Nathan's detail was approved by the NYPD after a stranger made an unspecified threat to her. The commissioner at the time was Bernard Kerik, who was recently indicted on tax fraud charges in an unrelated matter. "It wasn't about her being the mayor's girlfriend," Kerik said. "The person spoke to her by name and made comments to her."

Kerik signed off on all of this. Makes Rudy's support for Kerik, even after being informed of his alleged criminal activities, easier to understand.

       Rudy's saga reads like a cheap paperback novel. However, I'll wait for the Broadway musical version.

    now, did all new york citizens, who were threatened during giuliani's term as mayor, get assigned special police protection? i have to figure that number must have been in the 1,000's.

    What about the dog?  According to Talkingpointsmemo NYPD cops were used to walk Judy Nathan's dog.  I'm sure that the reason for this was that some stranger made some unspecified threats to the dog.

    LoL for the dog! I bet NYPD would never take me everyday to the marriage family counselor just because a stranger, my husband, could cut my neck on the road. :P not cut it, but break it for sure. And I bet they are even taking orders for flowers from the VIP's coz I saw to policemen yesterday carrying a bunch of flowers. Wondering who were them for... :P
