Possible campaign spending violations

Although Giuliani's consulting firm Giuliani Partners began "picking up the costs" on June 18, 2007, Giuliani's "campaign spending reports showed no security expenses during the first three months of this year. But the burly guards who trail Giuliani around the country have not been working for free. ... Some analysts say the campaign may have run afoul of federal laws that prohibit candidates from accepting money or in-kind contributions from corporations."[4]
