When Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew Giuliani lost his Republican primary race on Tuesday, it brought to an end a highly embarrassing campaign that will perhaps be best remembered for Rudy pressing assault charges against a grocery store worker who very lightly slapped him on the back and called him a scumbag. Now it turns out this incident could represent new legal trouble for Rudy in New York.

Current New York City Mayor Eric Adams has his own problems to put it mildly. But he has a point when it comes to Rudy Giuliani. Adams pointed out that Rudy Giuliani falsely told the police that the worker hit him so hard as to nearly knock him down, and as a result, the grocery worker was arrested and left in jail for 24 hours before the charges were downgraded. Adams went on to remind everyone that when a woman walking her dog in Central Park famously and falsely told the police that a Black man was threatening her, she ended up facing legal trouble for it.


We’ll see if this goes anywhere. But when the Mayor of New York City is directly calling for the District Attorney to examine whether Rudy Giuliani broke the law by falsely reporting an assault to the police, it opens at least the possibility that Giuliani will face legal consequences. Of course, with the way the January 6th public hearings are going, falsely reporting an assault is the very least of Giuliani’s legal troubles.
