In the aftermath of the 2020 elections, Rudy Giuliani went on the offensive. And now, like the January 6th rioters, he’s going to pay the price. Here is the full story.
They Smelled Corruption
After Donald Trump lost the 2020 Presidential election to Joe Biden, his minions attacked the whole system.
The process was corrupt, and so were those involved, Trump supporters said.
Giuliani Joined the Fray
One of the more high-profile lackeys in this cause was former Trump attorney and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
He Was Part of the Mob
Taking to the talk show circuit and making various statements after the November election, Giuiliani joined the mob uprising.
He Pointed Fingers
Not only did Giuiliani jump into the narrative that “Democrats stole the election,” he decided to point fingers.
He Had No Boundaries
And Giuliani didn’t reserve his finger-pointing for the top of the Democrat party – or even the top local officials.
He Wallowed in the Mud
Instead, Giuliani waded way out into the mud to accuse a pair of Georgia poll workers of ballot-stuffing and other nefarious deeds.
They Were Doing Their Jobs
The main basis of Giuliani’s claims was a video from election night that showed the two workers doing their jobs.
It Was a Red Herring
Giuliani insisted that the video showed suitcases full of ballots that were ultimately mishandled.
His claims were proven false, as a follow-up investigation by several parties showed that the ballots were handled properly.
He Named Names
The worst part about the whole disgraceful display was that Giuliani named names, and the video clearly showed the workers he was talking about.
They Were Outcasts
As a result, the two workers faced immediate and severe backlash in their communities.
And the ridicule hasn’t subsided over the years.
Nowhere to Hide
“There is nowhere I feel safe,” one of the women said last year.
They Fought Back
That statement came as proceedings were unfolding against Giuliani after the workers filed defamation suits against the fallen politician.
He Had to Prove Himself
As part of the early legal proceedings, Giuliani was served several subpoenas.
He had to provide a mountain of evidence about his own financial status and the election itself.
He Dragged His Feet
But as the months passed, Giuliani and his legal team stonewalled the process.
He Cried Poor
According to Giuliani, he hasn’t been able to access his own electronic records.
A big problem, he says, is that gaining that access costs more than he can afford.
He Bought Some Time
That might seem like a vague and shady claim, but it bought Giuliani a little time to mount his defense.
He Fessed Up
In the meantime, the former mayor admitted this summer that he did indeed defame the election workers back in 2020.
He’s Out of Time
And now, Giuliani’s time has run out completely.
The Judge Shut Him Down
In late August, federal Judge Beryl Howell of the US District Court in Washington, DC, ruled that Giuliani’s case was done.
Giuliani Lost Big
Because Giuliani would not comply with the discovery requirements, the judge ruled in favor of the election workers.
Court Costs Kill
At this point, Giuliani has already paid nearly $100,000 in sanctions to cover the plaintiff’s legal fees.
That tally only figures to grow.
He Needs a Side Hustle
And, with the penalty phase of the trial coming up next, some experts estimate that Giuliani could eventually have to pay out tens of millions of dollars to the two poll workers.
He May Die in Court
That could just be the opening of the floodgates, too, as a barrage of other lawsuits are lined up against Giuliani once this one is finally in the books.
