They won’t leave him alone.

On Friday (June 10), the Washington D.C. Office of Disciplinary Counsel gave Rudy Giuliani an ethics charge for promoting baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 Presidential election before a federal court in Pennsylvania.

The charge could hinder Guiliani’s ability to practice law in the city.

In the filing by the disciplinary division of the D.C. Bar, it’s asserted that Giuliani violated Pennsylvania Rules of Professional Conduct for bringing “issues therein without a non-frivolous basis in law and fact” and participating “in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.”

The filing also notes Giuliani failed to provide sufficient sourcing to prove his allegations of election fraud in Pennsylvania.

In the complaint, the Disciplinary Counsel mentions that despite needing to know “the ‘evidence’ he provided relied upon false or faulty statistics and analysis,” he still “justified his allegations of fraud” against the defendant counties “by promising the district court that ‘statistical analysis will evidence that over 70,000 mail and other mail ballots which favor [President] Biden were improperly counted.'”

Giuliani also claimed he had 300 statements that would satisfy the burden of proof.

However, the complaint through these statements into question, saying, “the affidavits, declarations, and statements that he provided to the district court and other bodies were (a) unsupported, (b) unrelated to [former President] Trump voters, (c) involve conduct outside the seven Defendant Counties, and (d) by their own terms were isolated incidents that could not have affected the presidential election’s results by offsetting the Biden majority of over 80,000 votes.”
