Birthday wishes from Rudy Giuliani for $325.
A longtime Donald Trump adviser facing mounting legal bills and a criminal investigation said Tuesday that he signed up for Cameo, a website that allows celebrities to sell video greetings to fans.
“Hi, this is Rudy Giuliani, and I’m on Cameo,” Giuliani says in a welcome video posted on his page. “If there’s a question you’d like to discuss, or a story you’d like to hear or share with me, or a greeting I could give someone to bring happiness to their day, I’d love to do it. It can be arranged and we can talk through the magic of Cameo.”
On Giuliani’s Cameo page, the price of the video message was originally $199. But sometime Wednesday, the price was changed to $325.
Giuliani did not respond to a request for comment. His attorney, Bob Costello, declined to comment.
In June, Giuliani’s allies created a “Freedom Fund” for public donations to help the former New York City mayor and Manhattan prosecutor with his legal troubles.
Giuliani’s business dealings with Ukrainian oligarchs when he worked as an attorney for Trump, the former president, are the subject of an investigation by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. Federal agents raided his home and office in April, seizing phones and computers.
Giuliani denies wrongdoing charges, and his lawyers believe the investigation is politically motivated.
He also faces a $1.3 billion lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems, the hardware maker he falsely claims stole Trump’s 2020 presidential election through voter fraud. He claims his statements were free speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
On Wednesday, a judge denied Giuliani’s request to dismiss the case on technicalities. Giuliani is expected to make another attempt to dismiss the suit.
In June, a New York court suspended Giuliani from practicing law after finding that he had made “patently false and misleading” statements against the integrity of the election.
