Liar of the week

Rudy Giuliani told the New York Times last summer that his partial ownership of Sky Watch LLC would not give it an advantage in securing a Federal contract should he become President. Sky Watch provides high tech electronic surveillance equipment that could be used along the fence between Mexico and the U.S. This high-tech fence is one of the cornerstones of Giuliani’s immigration platform, and something he frequently advocates in his speeches.

Giuliani no longer has his ownership stake, but the Sky Watch founders and spouses have given his campaign more than $20,000. Giuliani declined further comment for a Times article on the investment that appeared in today’s paper.

I guess that actually makes him the liar of last summer, but I just read about it today.
