It seems that Rudy Giuliani is pretty tolerant when it comes to hiring people. That’s a good thing, right? Er, no. He’s hired wonderful people over the years like druggies and Bernard Kerik. Not even Mittens Romney can compare. And when it comes to the criminal practice of abortion, Rudy simply says, get over it. Even his own children find it impossible to support him.
Now another one of his wonderful hires comes to light: an accused child molester! But Rudy continues to stand behind his man.
Presidential candidate Rudolph Giuliani hired a Catholic priest to work in his consulting firm months after the priest was accused of sexually molesting two former students and an altar boy and told by the church to stop performing his priestly duties.
Even the church turned him away, but not our Rudy!
The priest, Monsignor Alan Placa, a longtime friend of Giuliani and the priest who officiated at his second wedding to Donna Hanover, continues to work at Giuliani Partners in New York, to the outrage of some of his accusers and victims’ groups, which have begun to protest at Giuliani campaign events.
But he’s probably innocent, right? There’s nobody who’s actually come forward or anything, right?
“This man did unjust things, and he’s being protected and employed and taken care of. It’s not a good thing,” said one of the accusers, Richard Tollner, who says Placa molested him repeatedly when he was a student at a Long Island, N.Y. Catholic boys high school in 1975.
Stand by your man, Rudolph.
At a campaign appearance in Milwaukee last week, Giuliani continued to defend Placa, who he described to reporters as a close friend for 39 years.
Just how close? Revolting. Pro-family? Hardly. Got my vote? Not by a long shot.
