Rudy Giuliani has had his fair share of controversies. The notorious attorney from Brooklyn served as the Mayor of New York City from 1994-2001. During his mayoral reign, Giuliani’s most significant contribution was his handling of the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
But Giuliani has had his fair share of controversies in recent times. In fact, it all started when he joined President Trump’s administration. The ex-mayor of New York was seen in highly embarrassing footage in Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat sequel.
The most recent controversy involving Giuliani was when a witness he brought to a press conference recently turned out to be a convicted sex offender.

He also owns a security consulting business that he founded in 2002. Giuliani also acquired an investment banking firm which he later sold.
Giuliani’s net worth took a hit when Giuliani and his wife Judith Nathan filed for a divorce. Through their divorce case, many details about Giuliani’s income and lifestyle cost were revealed.
Giuliani and his wife maintained six homes and spent a total of $230,000 every month to keep up with their lifestyle expenses. He is also known to spend about $12,000 per month on cigars.
Finally, after the couple separated in 2018, Giuliani agreed to pay Judith $43,000 per month in support.
Caught in a Web of Controversies
This Saturday, Rudy Giuliani held a press conference to address and reason the Republican’s accusations of voting irregularities in the presidential election.
Giuliani chose the parking lot of “Four Seasons Total Landscaping” as the spot for his press conference. And this wasn’t even the worst part. He introduced a Republic poll watcher who claimed that he witnessed voting irregularities.
The real shocker came when the witness was identified to be a convicted sexual offender who even spent time in jail.
A few weeks back Giuliani was also engulfed in another controversy when he was seen in highly embarrassing footage in Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Borat: Subsequent Movie Film”.
The movie has a scene in which Giuliani is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of a TV journalist, but the journalist was actually an actor playing Borat’s daughter.
Giuliani’s actions raised several questions regarding the former mayor’s conduct and the possibility that he might use his position to exploit others.
