The things people will do to burnish their reputation for the Republican Presidential primaries. Here Rudolph W. Giuliani, in his campaign biography, denies all knowledge of his two so-called "children" and of his two so-called "ex wives":

She was also a founding member of the Board of Trustees of the Twin Towers Fund, which raised and distributed $216 million to over 600 families and individuals.

In 2006, Mrs. Giuliani was awarded New York University College of Nursing’s “Humanitarian Award” in recognition of using her nursing identity for humanitarian work and charitable endeavors as well as for being a powerful voice that enhances the visibility of nursing and elevates the profession. Also in 2006, Mrs. Giuliani received the “St. Francis Xavier Cabrini Service Award” from Mother Cabrini High School, an award honoring her commitment to young women and their education.
