Throughout Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican party, Rudy Giuliani has emerged as one of the real estate mogul’s most emphatic surrogates, consistently backing Trump even at his most controversial moments.

But don’t expect the children of New York City’s former mayor to share his enthusiasm. Yep, Politico reports Caroline Rose Giuliani intends to vote for Hillary Clinton, a woman her father once described as “too stupid” to be president. And unlike other children of prominent Republican families who have stopped short of a full endorsement of Clinton, Caroline has made her choice crystal clear:


Caroline told Politico that her father is aware of her intentions to cast her vote for Clinton, insisting that he’s “fully comfortable” with the decision. But based on Giuliani’s recent assertion that Trump is more fit for office because Clinton is a woman, we’re guessing that dad’s relaxed response might have more to do with indifference to his daughter’s political preferences. After all, she’s a woman too.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
