Giuliani Refuses to Fire Child Molester Priest

What does it say about the frontrunning Republican for president when he puts personal relationships before right and wrong. Giuliani, the former prosecutor, seems to oblivious to the serious charges surrounding his friend and associate, a priest. This is the second time in recent weeks scandals surrounded the former mayor's campaign:
Advocates for victims of abuse by Catholic clergy on Friday urged presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani to fire a priest who was suspended from the church and then hired by the ex-mayor's security consulting business. A spokeswoman for Giuliani said the firm had no plans to fire Monsignor Alan Placa.

Do we need another president who is pig headed:
"There's ample evidence showing that Placa consistently protected predators, shrewdly deceived victims, and covered up horrific clergy sex crimes," said a statement from David Clohessy, national director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. SNAP also contends that he abused children.

Does it remind you of the Gonzales-Bush relationship:
Placa and Giuliani have been friends since their days together at Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn, N.Y. After he was suspended, Placa received special permission to officiate at the funeral of the former mayor's mother, Helen, in 2002. He also baptized both of Giuliani's children.

Its one reason why even his kids don't like Mr.Giuliani. The former mayor should follow the Romney example:
An ever-present aide to Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney took a leave of absence Friday after he became the subject of investigations in two states for allegedly impersonating a law enforcement officer.

On the other hand, this guy sounds creepy. What did the Romney know about this guy before he was hired:
In 2004, Garrity was cited and fined by Massachusetts officials after a Ford Crown Victoria registered to him was found to have lights, a siren, radios and other law enforcement equipment -- including a baton -- after it was parked illegally in Boston's North End. At the time, Garrity was paid $75,000 annually as Romney's gubernatorial chief of operations.
