Rudy Giuliani accused of fake Arizona voters after his 80th birthday party

Giuliani had boasted that he was not found to be served with the papers.

Rudy Giuliani was notified of his indictment Friday night related to efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona after his 80th birthday party and after boasting on social media that he had avoided being notified.

“The last defendant was handed over moments ago. @RudyGiuliani, no one is above the law,” Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes posted on X, directly responding to a post by Giuliani on Friday night mocking Mayes with a photo from his 80th birthday party for failing to deliver his indictment.

Giuliani, in a since-deleted tweet, wrote: “If Arizona authorities can’t find me tomorrow morning: 1. They must dismiss the charge; 2. They must admit they can’t count the votes.”

Mayes shared a screenshot of the post even after it was deleted.

Giuliani received the accusation after his birthday party, hosted in Palm Beach, Florida, by Republican consultant Caroline Wren, ended and while he was walking to a car, according to his spokesman Ted Goodman.

“He was unfazed and enjoyed an incredible evening with hundreds of people, from all walks of life, who love and respect him for his contributions to society. We look forward to full vindication soon,” Goodman said.

When the indictment was announced in late April, a Giuliani adviser said, “The continued militarization of our justice system should worry every American, from Arizona to Michigan and everywhere in between, as it causes permanent and irrevocable harm.” to the country”.

Giuliani is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for his arraignment.

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn and former Trump lawyers Jenna Ellis, John Eastman and Christina Bobb are among the others indicted on charges including fraud, forgery and conspiracy.
