Giuliani Campaign Strong Arms Wall Street?
Word on Wall Street is that New York fundraisers for Rudy Giuliani are calling senior executives with histories of supporting Republican candidates with demands along these lines: “We need five people from your firm to raise $100,000 for Rudy. Get back to us.”
The caller then hangs up, satisfied the instructions were clear and will be followed.
One hopes they at least include a phone number.
Granting that Giuliani is not currently an office holder and thus has no obvious coercive power, this strikes me as a tad heavy handed.
