Why Carbonetti Is Giving Up His Job With Rudy

In a brief interview just now, Rudy Giuliani’s top political adviser, Tony Carbonetti, confirmed a report in today’s Cindy Adams column that he is leaving Giuliani Partners to work for Ken Langone, but insisted that it did not amount in any way to a defection from the Giuliani camp.
“I am always there for Rudy if he decides to run for office,” Carbonetti said. “I’m there doing anything I can. I am still an adviser, confidante and friend.” And, he added, “He is still weighing his options about whether he will run for governor or not.”
Carbonetti said he will serve as a strategic adviser to Langone but the new job will allow him more freedom to pursue other business endeavors, namely a new consulting company he is starting with Chris Henick, a former aide to Karl Rove.
