About Rudy Giuliani in brief
Rudolph William Louis Giuliani (born May 28, 1944) is an American attorney and politician. He served as the 107th Mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001. He led New York’s controversial \”civic cleanup\” as its mayor. In April 2018, Giuliani joined President Donald Trump’s personal legal team. His activities as Trump’s attorney have drawn renewed media scrutiny, including allegations that he is engaged in corruption and profiteering. In late 2019, Giuliani was reportedly under federal investigation for violating lobbying laws, and possibly several other charges, as a central figure in the Trump–Ukraine scandal. Giuliani is of Tuscan descent on his father’s side, as his paternal grandparents were born in Montecatini Terme, Tuscany, Italy. He was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2001, and was given an honorary knighthood in 2002 by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. In 2002, Giuliani founded a security consulting business, Giuliani Partners, and acquired, but later sold, an investment banking firm, Giuliani Capital Advisors. In 2005, he joined a law firm, renamed Bracewell & Giuliani. In 2000, he ran against First Lady Hillary Clinton for a US Senate seat from New York, but left the race once diagnosed with prostate cancer. In 2010, Giuliani declined to run for New York governor in 2010 and for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. He has often been engaged for public speaking, political commentary, and Republican campaign support.
He lived in East Flatbush until Harold and Helen moved to Manhattan’s Upper East Side in 1981. When he was seven years old, his family moved from Brooklyn to Garden City, where he attended the local Catholic school. Giuliani was elected president of his junior class in his sophomore year, but was not re-elected in his junior year. He joined the Phi Rho fraternity and considered becoming a priest in his senior year of college. He is a member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and the New York State Council of the Fraternities and Sororities. He worked as an enforcer for his brother-in-law Leo D’Avan, who operated a crime a loaning and gambling ring at a restaurant in Brooklyn. The couple lived in east Brooklyn until Harold died of prostate cancer in 2006. He now lives in Manhattan with his wife and their three children. He also has a son, David, and a daughter, Gisele, who lives in New Jersey with her husband, Michael.

He previously served as United States Associate Attorney General from 1981 to 1983 and United States Attorney for the Southern District of New New York from 1983 to 1989. In 1993, he succeeded in 1993, and was reelected in 1997, holding a platform of toughness on crime. For his mayoral leadership after the September 11 attacks in 2001, he was called \”America’s mayor\”.
