"Rudy Giuliani doesn't deserve to be president" [VIDEO]

If Rudy Giuliani thinks he'll be able to coast to the GOP nomination with the endorsement of the NYPD he's horribly mistaken. According to Lynch, he couldn't manage the police department and didn't pay them properly. "He carries his fame on the shoulders of NYPD officers and after 9/11 he carried himself on sacrifices of NYPD officers," says Lynch, who is unflinching in his criticism in the video to your right. We need more New Yorkers like Lynch to speak out and give the real story on Giuliani's so-called "leadership", so the myth of the "9/11 hero" can be destroyed forever.
