Mr. Giuliani is tanking badly, perhaps because Dennis Gallagher has endorsed him. Actually, when Gallagher's lawyer compared him to Giuliani (Talk about hero to zero!), the slide began shortly thereafter.
His colleagues think the DA should stop picking on Pinky:
Two Republican council members, James S. Oddo, the minority leader, and Vincent Ignizio, issued a joint statement: “Dennis Gallagher has already begun to make the necessary changes in his life, and the judge’s decision this morning affords him the chance to reclaim his life.” They added that while Mr. Gallagher admitted to “morally challenged behavior, from Day 1 he has steadfastly maintained his innocence.”
Let's get this straight. The DA should drop their cases against people charged with crimes who steadfastly maintain their innocence. Let's take it a step further and say the police should not arrest anyone who says they didn't do it. Because we know that guilty people always own up to what they've done. This is the kind of reasoning that gets you disinvited from Rudy's parties.
