Former Giuliani staffer alleges sexual assault and harassment in $10 million lawsuit


It was an opportunity that was “too good to pass up,” according to the filing. But the offers were “a sham,” motivated by Giuliani’s desire to “pursue a sexual relationship” with Dunphy, and the abuse began “almost immediately,” she claims.

The 70-page filing details multiple instances of sexual harassment and assault, including allegations that Giuliani forced Dunphy to perform oral sex on him in his Upper East Side apartment and while he took phone calls. Giuliani “aggressively pursued a sexual relationship” with Dunphy, the filing says, and “made it clear that meeting his sexual demands” was a requirement of her job. He “continuously pressured her for sex” and was “unconcerned” about whether Dunphy had consented, the complaint says.

Giuliani did not respond to requests for comment, but a spokesman told The Associated Press that the former mayor “vehemently” denied the allegations.

“Mayor Giuliani’s lifetime of public service speaks for itself, and he will pursue all available remedies and counterclaims,” ​​Giuliani’s communications adviser, Ted Goodman, told the AP.

In addition to his sexual demands, Giuliani engaged in “alcohol-soaked rants that included sexist, racist and anti-Semitic remarks,” many of which were recorded, according to the filing.

Dunphy also alleges in the complaint that Giuliani put her in control of his email, giving her access to “highly sensitive” information, including correspondence between Giuliani and then-President Donald Trump, as well as several Trump advisers.

According to the lawsuit, Giuliani also told Dunphy he was able to break laws because he had “immunity,” and he claimed he sold $2 million worth of pardons, money he and Trump would split.

Giuliani also repeatedly told Dunphy not to talk to the FBI, the lawsuit alleges. When she told Giuliani that FBI agents had visited her family’s home in Florida to question her, he “demanded” that she not talk to or cooperate with them, claiming that one or two of the agents would “go totally destroyed.”

The complaint, filed in New York State Court, names Giuliani, his companies and 10 unidentified individuals in New York.
