Rudy Giuliani’s Vulnerabilities

The Smoking Gun has posted portions of a vulnerability study compiled by Rudy Giuliani’s staff prior to his 1993 run for Mayor. Political rivals will find portions relevant to any 2008 campaigns. From The Smoking Gun’s introduction:

He surely could not have been pleased to read that his “personal life raises questions about a ‘weirdness factor.'” That weirdness, aides reported, stemmed from Giuliani’s 14-year marriage to his second cousin, a union that he got annulled by claiming to have never received proper dispensation from the Catholic Church for the unorthodox nuptials. “When asked about his personal life, Giuliani gives a wide array of conflicting answers,” the campaign report stated. “All of this brings the soundness of his judgement into question–and the veracity of his answers.” The internal study also addresses prospective charges that Giuliani dodged the Vietnam draft and was a “man without convictions” because of his transformation from George McGovern voter to a Reagan-era Justice Department appointee
