Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota talks to reporters, uses an iPad, is fond of the Godfather trilogy and sometimes drunk-tweets.

But there is a line he won't cross.

After Lhota invoked Fiorello LaGuardia, Fox Business News host Neil Cavuto noted LaGuardia was very "folksy," and asked what Lhota would do to match that.

"All New York mayors are characters in some way, shape or form," said Lhota. "I won't ever wear a dress like Rudy Giuliani did at Inner Circle, I can guarantee you that."

Lhota was a budget director and deputy mayor for Giuiani. The former mayor is strongly supporting Lhota's bid for City Hall.

Giuliani dressed in women's clothing for the Inner Circle Show, the annual event at which New York City reporters and the mayor roast each other to raise money for various charities.
