The New York Daily News reports:
Plans for a party celebrating the 25-year anniversary of Rudy Giuliani becoming the mayor of New York City are “fizzling out” because the 74-year-old politico is “too toxic,” according to a source who was invited. Ideally, the fete was to have taken place at the New York Hilton hotel where Giuliani celebrated his election win in November 1993.
Organizers were aiming for early January. “They wanted it to be around when he took office,” that source said. “Rudy wanted it to appear to come together organically,” according to that source, who said the mayor left party-planning responsibilities to associates who struggled to find supporters willing to pay for tickets.
“It’d be like a mafia wedding,” that source joked, referring to mob gatherings where investigators and media members show up to take an inventory of party-goers with close ties to the dubious guests of honor.
