DEBATT

Daryl Brooks and Rudy Giulliani

In Plain Sight

I got a bad feeling when I saw Rudy Giulliani in front of Four Seasons Total Landscaping. The feeling got even worse when I saw the man he had chosen to further the false claim of election fraud.

I was scrolling through Twitter the other night, and there was Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City, and present attorney of Donald Trump, holding a press conference at Four Seasons Total Landscaping on State Road in Northeast Philly, about 35 minutes from Lawrence, NJ, the town where I grew up. Situated between a crematorium and a sex toy shop—and far from what surely was the intended Four Seasons Hotel in Center City—Giuliani stood at a mahogany podium, seemingly out of place, situated on top the cracked cement driveway. Behind him were disgruntled loyalists, filled with tales of the alleged voter fraud we´ve all been hearing about since the days following Biden´s victory.

I immediately recognized the first speaker: Daryl Brooks. The convicted child sex offender who served three years in prison, and who I´d surprisingly come across while working one of the many jobs I held as a struggling artist, clearly hadn´t been vetted. Daryl, who had been a Republican poll watcher, spoke as Giuliani stood to one side. Election officials, Daryl claimed, “Did not allow us to see anything.” He continued. “Was it corrupt or not?” His conclusion: “It was not fair at all.”
