Rudy Guiliani has been hit with a second sexual misconduct accusation in as many days. This time, a former aide claims the former New York mayor forced her to give him oral sex while he was on speakerphone to Donald Trump in a bombshell $10m sexual assault and harassment lawsuit filed on Monday.
According to the complaint, Noelle Dunphy, who worked as an aide to Mr Giuliani in 2019 and 2020, claims that he would make her perform sex acts on him while speaking to his high-profile associates over the phone because it made him “feel like Bill Clinton”.
“He often demanded oral sex while he took phone calls on speaker phone from high-profile friends and clients, including then-President Trump,” Ms Dunphy claims in the lawsuit, according to Reuters.
Ms Dunphy is suing Mr Giuliani for $10m for sexual assault, harassment, wage theft and other misconduct over claims that he forced her to perform sex acts on him and work in the nude during her two-year employment.
In the suit, Ms Dunphy alleges that the former New York City mayor forced her to perform sex acts on him and work in the nude during her two-year employment and went on “alcohol-drenched rants that included sexist, racist, and antisemitic remarks”, many of which she recorded.
“He made clear that satisfying his sexual demands-which came virtually anytime, anywhere-was an absolute requirement of her employment and of his legal representation,” the lawsuit states.
“But unbeknownst to Ms Dunphy, Giuliani apparently decided during the interview that he would use the job offer and his representation as a pretext to develop a quid pro quo sexual relationship with Ms Dunphy. He was later recorded telling Ms Dunphy, ‘I’ve wanted you from the day I interviewed you’,” the lawsuit states.
She also claims that the first week she worked for Mr Giuliani, 78, he flew her to New York and invited her to stay at his apartment in the city, where they drank together.
“Giuliani then pulled her head onto his penis, without asking for or obtaining any form of consent. He held her by her hair. It became clear to Ms Dunphy that there was no way out of giving him oral sex. She did so, against her will,” the lawsuit states.
The lawsuit also states that Mr Giuliani insisted that she carried out her work naked, wearing a bikini, or tiny shorts with an American flag on them that he provided for her.
Ms Dunphy claims that she agreed to start working for Mr Giuliani for a salary of $1m per year, but he told her he would have to defer payment as he was going through a divorce with his “crazy” ex-wife.
She also alleges that Mr Giuliani and then-president Mr Trump were offering to sell presidential pardons for $2m apiece.
“He told Ms Dunphy that she could refer individuals seeking pardons to him, so long as they did not go through “the normal channels” of the Office of the Pardon Attorney, because correspondence going to that office would be subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act,” she added.
The lawsuit states that she began working for Mr Giuliani in January 2019 and that he fired her in January 2021, without paying her the deferred salary.
She is seeking $10m from Mr Giuliani and three of his companies.
The allegation is just one of several explosive claims laid out in a 70-page lawsuit filed on Monday against Giuliani, who denies the allegations.
