New York court suspends Rudy Giuliani’s law license over false election claims

This guy is a douchebag who built his career as an arch-drug warrior and arch-police statist in the 80s and 90s, so fuck him. But it is interesting how the new popular front/ruling class unity regime continues to purge and/or co-opt the opposition. So far, they are using the strategy I figured they would of purging conservatives generally and Trumpists specifically (who are currently the main opposition), co-opting the center-left (progressive liberals, BLM, rainbow flaggers, woke capital, PMC, etc), and escalating repression against the far right, far left, and Islamists.

NEW YORK (AP) — An appeals court suspended Rudy Giuliani from practicing law in New York because he made false statements while trying to get courts to overturn Donald Trump’s loss in the presidential race.

An attorney disciplinary committee said in its motion to suspend Giuliani’s license that there was “uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani had made false statements to the courts, the public and lawmakers as he pushed theories that the election was stolen through fraud.

“This country is being torn apart by continued attacks on the legitimacy of the 2020 election and of our current president, Joseph R. Biden,” the committee wrote. “The hallmark of our democracy is predicated on free and fair elections. False statements intended to foment a loss of confidence in our elections and resulting loss of confidence in government generally damage the proper functioning of a free society.”
