Noelle Dunphy, a former aid to Rudy Giuliani, has filed a lawsuit against him, alleging he sexually assaulted and harassed her for two years, starting in January 2019, and never paid her nearly $2 million in promised wages. The suit also claims Giuliani was selling pardons for $2 million, “which he and President Trump would split.”

Straight Arrow News contributor Rashad Richey argues this is why we shouldn’t trust people like Giuliani and former President Trump to make public policy decisions.

A new allegation has come out against Rudy Giuliani. This allegation? Really sensational. In addition to being accused of sexually assaulting and sexually violating someone who worked for him, additional allegations are in this 70-page lawsuit. It includes things like Giuliani being racist, Giuliani saying things against other women, Giuliani making his employees perform sexually for him. These are all allegations in the lawsuit. But according to The Daily Beast, there are over 20,000 emails and recordings to back up the claims.

So according to the complaint, Ms. Dunphy, Noelle Dunphy, alleges that Giuliani not only sexually violated her, but also promised to pay her $1 million a year plus benefits and expenses. According to the official filing, she only received $12,000 over a period of two years.

Let’s go back to one of his, at least former, best buds — Donald Trump. Donald Trump told us he just walks up to women and grabs them by the, you know. That’s his thing. That’s what he does. And because he’s famous and rich, they let him do it. You see, there’s this commonality here. It binds them, it connects them. I’m talking about their perception of women. This is why we don’t trust individuals who talk a particular way in this arena, but they will say something else in another.

Let me talk to you about something. We’re talking about bias against women. A new allegation has come out against Rudy Giuliani. This allegation? Really sensational.

We cannot trust you in a room when policy is on the table. You see, their biases, whatever their bias may be, it plays out, it permeates beyond them into the policies they champion, the policies they direct, the laws they get passed. See, the reason why this is newsworthy is because people like Giuliani, well, they’ve been in charge of very important things. This is a former federal prosecutor, former mayor of New York City, and the former attorney for the former president of the United States. 

 

You see, what they say in private is typically who they actually are. What they say in public is what they would like you to believe they are. Policy matters. Good policy creates life while bad policy creates death. 

 

Good policy gives you the ability to move to progress. Bad policy restricts or takes them away. As long as we have individuals like Giuliani, Trump and others who are truly the worst among partisan politics, but they are the leaders, the champions. Now, this is not just a partisan issue. Naturally, both political sides, they have their fair share of individuals who are adversarial to decency, and honor. But I do want to ask you this question. Why do you think conservatives promote their leaders who have these dysfunctions at the highest level of their party, but those on the left, well, they will get excommunicated. I want to know your thoughts.
