NEW YORK (AP) — Rudy Giuliani has filed for bankruptcy, days after being ordered to pay $148 million in a defamation lawsuit.

The former New York City mayor listed nearly $153 million in existing or potential debts. Those included hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax liabilities, money he owes his lawyers and many millions of dollars in potential legal judgements in lawsuits against him.

The biggest of those is the $148 million he was ordered to pay a week ago for making false statements about election workers in Georgia stemming from the 2020 presidential contest.

Just blows my mind that this man has destroyed his life merely to support Trump.

The $148 million judgment, which is for defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and punitive damages, is not dischargeable in bankruptcy.  Sorry, Rudy.

Medical science should probably examine his brain after he passes. To look for abnormalities.  /s

9/11 was a long time ago. 1/6 has been his downfall.

The lesson to be learned…you’re only as good as your last act and the company you keep.

It is really beyond me that an intelligent and beloved man can fall so far in a matter of 20 years.  How did he get sucked in?  Was it a slow decline or are we talking about a rapid decline in the last 5 years.  A non partisan book about the rise and fall of Rudy might be very interesting.

The same way other trump supporters were sucked in. They believed the lies.

He was fading from the spotlight and along with his disastrous run for president his ego needed a lift and hanging onto Trump he hoped it would get him a spot in the Trump administration.

Yea, I think it was ego more than anything else.  In many ways that’s worse as he probably didn’t believe the lies that he repeated.  Ambition and the need to remain a player, dropped a guy that did great things to reduce organized crime and pull NYC thru 9-11 to the mess of a human that he’s become.

That is similar to what I was thinking.  I would think he still had a career of sorts but needed more spotlight.  IMO that just makes it a little more sad.

Ambition and the need to remain a player,

Too bad it was Donald's horse he attached his wagon to.  I always wondered why he didn't run for governor.

Good question, I don’t know why he didn’t run for governor in 2010.

Difficult to try and imagine that he would sacrifice his life for nothing and now looks the fool of the century.

It certainly does, and he has nothing now but a ruined life.

And following three divorces, he has a very unhappy ending to his life.

The Georgia judge in Rudy's defamation case is demanding he pay up and pay up now. Rudy is just trying to delay paying his judgements...

I assume the vast majority of people in his situation would be doing the same thing.

Absolutely, anyone that can pay for the process does it.
