so why did Rudy’s? (h/t agitprop)

In the fall of 2001, city cops chauffeured Rudy Giuliani’s then-mistress, Judith Nathan, to her parents’ Pennsylvania home 130 miles away on the taxpayers’ dime…The records show that – in addition to using City Hall funds to take Giuliani and Nathan to 11 secret trysts in the Hamptons, as has been previously reported – taxpayers were paying to ferry Nathan on long-distance trips without Giuliani…Mayor Bloomberg’s gal pal, Diana Taylor, happily goes without police protection.

And we know this was on the up and up because

The detail was approved by Giuliani pal Bernard Kerik.
At the time, it was not uncommon to see Nathan being chauffeured around the city in an undercover Dodge with two detectives, who sometimes even helped to walk her dog…One document dated June 26, 2000, shows how money from five [city agencies] – the Mayor’s Office of People with Disabilities, the Community Assistance Unit, the Assigned Counsel Administrative Office, the Loft Board and the mayor’s liaison to the United Nations – was used to prepay an American Express account to the tune of $60,000.

I can just see city detectives walking around with Nathan’s dog, pooper-scooping and feeling wonderful about how their security training led to such a wonderful opportunity….and city overtime.

And abcnews.com reports that Rudy never wanted that Pookie should have to hail a cab.

Well before it was publicly known he was seeing her, then-married New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani provided a police driver and city car for his mistress Judith Nathan, former senior city officials tell the Blotter on ABCNews.com.
“She used the PD as her personal taxi service,” said one former city official who worked for Giuliani.

At least when Bill Clinton cheated he had the decency not to run up taxpayer dollars by restricting his activities to the confines of the Oval Office.
