Rudy Giuliani on Families & Children
Former Mayor of New York City; Republican Candidate for 2000 Senate (NY)
GIULIANI: I canít comment on Fred. I can tell you tha George Will wrote that I ran the most conservative government in the US in the last 50 years. I brought down crime more than anyone in this country. I brought down taxes. I drove pornography out of Times Square. In that environment--one of the most liberal cities in the country--I had more success than anyone ever thought I could have. So I think that was a pretty darn good conservative record. You can always find one exception or two to someone being absolutely conservative or absolutely this or absolutely that, but I think I had a heck of a lot of conservative results.
THOMPSON: Mayor Giuliani believes in federal funding for abortion. He believes in sanctuary cities. Heís for gun control. He sides with Hillary Clinton on each of those issues.
The end of Reginaís marriage to Rudy was mutual, not acrimonious. They had separated emotionally by the time they decided to do it legally, so the drama we saw in the second relationship wasnít there.
His bachelor status would soon end: shortly after having obtained his annulment from Regina, Rudy met a Florida-based television news reporter, the recently divorced Dona Hanover. She accepted Rudyís proposal of marriage and they tied the knot on April 15, 1984, at St. Monicaís Catholic Church, in Manhattan.
We made the case for creating a zone in which the shops could stay open. Since the zone reduced the area available to sex shops, rents in other areas could increase. Eventually, rents rose even within the zone, making it too expensive for the sex shops-the free market could achieve what zoning could not. In the years that followed, whenever the sex shops took us to court, judges would cite this buffer zone we created as proof the rules were not overly restrictive.
