Giuliani used a slightly different last name, and described
herself as having liberal political views.
Rudy Giuliani gave the following comment
on the story:
"My daughter I love very much. I have
great respect for her, and I'm really proud of her, and I don't
comment on children, because I want to give them the maximum
degree of privacy. The best thing to do, if you want to ask the
press to leave the children alone, the best way to do it is not
to comment on them one way or the other, except to say you're
very proud of them, and you love them very much, which I do."
