Georgia elections workers go for Guiliani’s jugular after massive win

No sooner had the courts reopened after a judge awarded them nearly $150 million, two Georgia election workers launched a new suit against former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Friday, a Washington, D.C. jury ordered that Giuliani pay Ruby Freeman and her daughter Wandrea “Shaye” Moss a combined sum over $148 million after he was found liable in August for defamation, civil conspiracy, and emotional distress regarding claims made about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election in the Peach State.

While the mayor had vowed to appeal and challenged the integrity of the process used in the defamation case, the mother-daughter duo returned to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Monday to file an injunction against Giuliani.

“Defendant Giuliani continues to spread the very same lies for which he has already been held liable,” the court document stated and cited as an example remarks made by the defendant at a press conference on Dec. 11.

The filing quoted the mayor saying that “forthcoming testimony would make ‘definitively clear that what I said was true, and that, whatever happened to them–which is unfortunate about other people overreacting–everything I said about them is true.’ When asked about whether he regretted his actions, Defendant Giuliani stated: ‘Of course I don’t regret it … I told the truth. They were engaged in changing votes.‘ Finally, when a reporter pointed out that there was ‘no proof of that,’ Defendant Giuliani stated, ‘You’re damn right there is….Stay tuned.'”

“Defendant Giuliani’s statements, coupled with his refusal to agree to refrain from continuing to make such statements, make clear that he intends to persist in his campaign of targeted defamation and harassment. It must stop,” argued the filing.

“In these unique circumstances,” the suit contended, “the proper remedy is a targeted injunction barring Defendant Giuliani from continuing to repeat the very falsehoods about Plaintiffs that have already been found and held, conclusively, to be defamatory.”

In addition to legal fees and the injunction enjoining Giuliani “from making or publishing, or causing to be made or published, further statements repeating any and all false claims” about “fraud, illegal activity, or misconduct,” Freeman and Moss sought “Such other and further relief as this Court deems just and proper.”

Giuliani’s political advisor Ted Goodman told the press, “I’m not going to comment on any potential upcoming legal matters, but I will say this–the Rudy Giuliani you see today is the same man who took down the Mafia, cleaned up New York City, lifted hundreds of thousands of people out of poverty, and comforted the nation–and world–following the terrorist attacks of September 11th.”

Reporters sought comment from former President Donald Trump at his golf club in West Palm Beach to which he said, “I think it’s so sad, what’s happened to Rudy. He’s a great patriot. He’s the greatest mayor in the history of New York. I think it’s a very, very unfair situation.”
