Rudy Giuliani never forgets.
The onetime mafia prosecutor told a newspaper columnist Monday that he still blames former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist for his dashed presidential ambitions in 2008 — because, Giuliani maintains, Crist didn’t keep a promise to endorse him.
Now that Crist has switched parties to run for Congress as a Democrat, Giuliani has made a point of making his feelings known.
Not that anyone in Florida had any doubts about where Giuliani stands on Crist. The former New York City mayor was featured in a 2014 attack ad when Crist was running for governor as a Democrat.
“I’ve never met a person in politics that I disrespect more than Charlie Crist,” Giuliani said in a video the GOP played in every Florida media market that year.
Giuliani’s comments Monday picked up the thread.
“He would fit in with Hillary. Hillary is a bigger liar than anybody, and Charlie is more dishonorable that anything. Charlie is a completely dishonorable man, and stands for nothing,” Giuliani said, according to Smith. “If Bernie were the nominee, Charlie would probably be running as a socialist.”
Crist has denied making any promises to Giuliani.
