Imagine that. Rudy's caught in another lie about the tax-payer funded valet service he had New York City provide for Judi Nathan while she was still his mistress. Up until yesterday Team Rudy had claimed that the NYPD only started providing Nathan with an around-the-clock security detail after December 2000, after their adulterous relationship became public. This was in response to a never-disclosed "threat" Nathan received on a street corner near her home. There's never been any details or evidence that the threat existed. But then-Police commissioner Bernie Kerik said it checked out. So please stop asking any more questions.
Here's Rudy, shortly after the security/valet story broke back in 2001 telling reporters that anyone who asked about it should be "ashamed of themselves."
Kerik and Giuliani have previously insisted that there was no security detail or valet service prior to December 2000.
