Guilliani: saint or sinner???

Reading this potential scandal brewing remonds me of romans 13:1-7

Romans 13
To Be a Responsible Citizen 1-3Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it's God's order. So live responsibly as a citizen. If you're irresponsible to the state, then you're irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible. Duly constituted authorities are only a threat if you're trying to get by with something. Decent citizens should have nothing to fear.
3-5Do you want to be on good terms with the government? Be a responsible citizen and you'll get on just fine, the government working to your advantage. But if you're breaking the rules right and left, watch out. The police aren't there just to be admired in their uniforms. God also has an interest in keeping order, and he uses them to do it. That's why you must live responsibly—not just to avoid punishment but also because it's the right way to live.
6-7That's also why you pay taxes—so that an orderly way of life can be maintained. Fulfill your obligations as a citizen. Pay your taxes, pay your bills, respect your leaders.

our duty as citzens is:

1. obey the law

2. support our elected officials who are doing their job.

we must not obey or follow leaders that they themselves are not obeying the law and or are not doing their jobs-and it is our duty to weigh each candiadates charecter,record and promoses and vote according to our conscience... so in the case of guilliani is he a saint or sinner??? it is our duty to consider the facts and vote accordingly,
