A Different Rudy? Not At All, Old Foe Says
By RICHARD STEIER
In its decision suspending Rudy Giuliani's New York law license for repeatedly making "false and misleading factual statements to cast doubt on the reliability of the results of the 2020 presidential election," a five-judge state Appellate Court panel said of his defense, "He does not attack the constitutionality of the particular disciplinary rules; he seemingly claims that they are unconstitutional as applied to him."
In the wake of that finding, which also rejected Mr. Giuliani's claim that "even if his statements were false or misleading, he did not make the statements knowing they were false when he made them," there were those who, as others have done over the past five years, contended the former Mayor had undergone a radical regression from the person they once respected and admired.
