Rudy's Priorities


by Steve

To my surprise and their credit, the New York Times did run a story today on Rudy’s dash for cash in ditching his responsibilities on the Iraq Study group.

Rudolph W. Giuliani quit the high-profile Iraq Study Group after failing to attend the group’s meetings, and financial filings showed that he chose to give two lucrative speeches on days the panel was meeting.

Mr. Giuliani left the panel after being given an ultimatum to either show up for meetings or leave the group, according to Newsday, which first reported the story.

Newsday reported that on May 18, 2006, a day the panel was meeting, Mr. Giuliani delivered a $100,000 speech on leadership at an Atlanta business awards breakfast and later attended a fund-raiser for Ralph Reed. And on April 12 last year, again when the panel was meeting, he gave a speech to a conference in South Korea for $200,000.

It’s good to see that Rudy had his priorities straight.
