Rudy Giuliani Wiki – Biography
Rudy Giuliani is an American attorney, cybersecurity advisor and politician who served as the 107th Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001. Politically a Democrat and then Independent in the 1970s, Giuliani has been a Republican since the 1980s. He served as United States Associate Attorney General from 1981 to 1983 and United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1983 to 1989.
When Giuliani was seven years old in 1951, his family moved from Brooklyn to Garden City South, where he attended the local Catholic school, St. Anne’s. Later, he commuted back to Brooklyn to attend Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, graduating in 1961.
Giuliani attended Manhattan College in Riverdale, Bronx, where he majored in political science with a minor in philosophy and considered becoming a priest. Giuliani was elected president of his class in his sophomore year, but was not re-elected in his junior year. He joined the Phi Rho Pi fraternity. He graduated in 1965. Giuliani decided to forgo the priesthood and instead attended the New York University School of Law in Manhattan, where he made the NYU Law Review and graduated cum laude with a Juris Doctor degree in 1968.
Giuliani started his political life as a Democrat. He volunteered for Robert F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign in 1968. He also worked as a Democratic Party committeeman on Long Island in the mid-1960s and voted for George McGovern for president in 1972.

Family & Siblings
Giuliani was born in the East Flatbush section, then an Italian-American enclave, in New York City’s borough of Brooklyn, as the only child of working-class parents, Harold Angelo Giuliani (1908–1981) and Helen Giuliani (1909–2002), both children of Italian immigrants. Giuliani is of Tuscan origins from his father, as his paternal grandparents (Rodolfo and Evangelina Giuliani) were born in Montecatini Terme, Tuscany, Italy. He was raised a Roman Catholic. Harold Giuliani, a plumber and a bartender, had trouble holding a job, was convicted of felony assault and robbery, and served prison time in Sing Sing. Once released, he worked as an enforcer for his brother-in-law Leo D’Avanzo, who operated for organized crime a loan sharking and gambling ring at a restaurant in Brooklyn. The couple lived in East Flatbush until Harold died of prostate cancer in 1981, whereupon Helen moved to Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
Upon graduation from law school, Giuliani clerked for Judge Lloyd Francis MacMahon, United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York.
Giuliani did not serve in the military during the Vietnam War. His conscription was deferred while he was enrolled at Manhattan College and NYU Law. Upon graduation from the latter in 1968, he was classified 1-A (available for military service), but in 1969 he was reclassified 2-A (essential civilian) as Judge MacMahon’s law clerk. In 1970, Giuliani received a high draft lottery number; he was not called up for service although by then he had been reclassified 1-A.
In 1975, Giuliani switched his party registration from Democratic to Independent. This came during a period of time in which he was recruited for a position in Washington, D.C. with the Ford administration: Giuliani served as the Associate Deputy Attorney General and chief of staff to Deputy Attorney General Harold “Ace” Tyler.
Caught In Hotel Bed Room
Is Rudy Giuliani in for his own October surprise?
President Donald Trump’s lawyer and the former mayor of New York City was pranked by Sacha Baron Cohen and caught in a questionable situation on camera with an actress in the new “Borat” sequel streaming Friday on Amazon Prime.
“Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” captures an interview in a hotel suite near the end of the film with Giuliani, 76, and actress Maria Bakalova, 24, who plays Baron Cohen’s onscreen 15-year-old daughter Tutar. The plot has Borat wanting to “gift” his daughter to Giuliani to pay respect to Trump, though he ultimately has a change of heart, and Baron Cohen (as Borat) attempts to disrupt the interview disguised as a boom mic operator.
When Borat leaves, Tutar and Giuliani go into a bedroom to have a drink, he asks for her name and address, and the camera captures Bakalova reaching into Giuliani’s shirt to retrieve his microphone as he gives her a pat on the back. When Bakalova turns away, Giuliani lies down on the bed and reaches into his pants, perhaps to tuck his shirt into his pants, when Baron Cohen bursts into the room wearing a wig, beard and women’s lingerie on top of his briefs.
“What’s going on here? Look at this guy,” Giuliani tells his security as he quickly leaves.
USA TODAY has reached out to Giuliani for comment.
The movie arrives less than two weeks before the presidential election on Nov. 3.
Giuliani has become a prominent player in Trump’s re-election campaign, after obtaining a hard drive from a laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, which allegedly documents business dealings in Ukraine.
Giuliani told Page Six in July that he went to The Mark Hotel in New York for what he thought was a real interview about the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus crisis. Giuliani said he was offered payment for the interview, which he asked to be donated to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
“This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought this must be a scam or a shake-down, so I reported it to the police,” Giuliani said. “I only later realized it must have been Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he previously fooled and I felt good about myself because he didn’t get me.”
USA TODAY has reached out to the New York Police Department for confirmation.
The former New York City mayor told Page Six he was a fan of “some of” Baron Cohen’s movies.
Another prank in the film shows Baron Cohen in character as “Country Steve” crashing a March for Our Rights rally in June and getting portions of the conservative crowd whooping by singing offensive lyrics about Barack Obama and Anthony Fauci.
