Allen, who has worked for Giuliani since September 2019, told the Daily Beast that she will be replaced by Todd Shapiro, a former spokesperson for Lindsay Lohan’s family whose website lists a range of clients including rapper Flavour Flav. and Hooters of Long Island and New Jersey.
Recent developments in the federal case against Giuliani were revealed to NBC New York on August 27 when the former New York mayor said the FBI wanted his emails and texts to date back to 1995. He also said in interviewed that he was not an alcoholic and claimed he functions “more efficiently than 90 percent of the population”.
At the time of his hire, Politico reported that representatives of the entities Allen listed on his resume said his titles were “at best embroidered and at most completely bogus.” Allen was 20 when she started working for Giuliani and was still completing her degree in online communications at Liberty University, according to Politico.
