Offers He Can't Refuse...

It will be intersting to see how Rudy G's Godfather impressions, hot on the heels of his abortion statements, play with would-be hometown supporters such as Larry Auriana, head of the Columbus Citizens Foundation, which organizes the annual Columbus Day Parade.

Auriana is a notably strong pro-life conservative Catholic who was instrumental in getting Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as
grand marshal of the 2005 parade. If he has a singular pet peeve, it is what he perceives as the pop culture stereotyping of Italians as gangsters. He's successfully gone to court to prevent Mayor Bloomberg from marching with cast members of The Sopranos.
