Some, like Sliwa, think he was granted access to the station by newly-elected Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whom he supported in the 1993 mayoral race. In September 2016, Sliwa conducted a successful hostile takeover of the Reform Party of New York State. The party was refused access to the ballot box in the November 2018 elections. Sliwa said in a December 2019 interview that he despises then-Republican President Donald Trump, calling him a “screwball and a lunatic.” Sliwa switched from the Reform Party to the Republican Party in February 2021, only weeks after Trump’s resignation.

Sliwa was married to Queens County District Attorney Melinda Katz until 2014, and they had two children together, both conceived in vitro during the preceding five years. Sliwa’s ex-wife Mary accuses him of diverting money to Katz while still married to her as part of a plan to build a “nest egg” with Katz before moving in with her. Katz and Sliwa broke up on Election Day 2014, according to the New York Daily News on February 14, 2015. Katz and his children currently live in Forest Hills. Sliwa married his longtime girlfriend, attorney, and animal rights activist, Nancy Regula, in 2018, and the couple now lives on the Upper West Side with their rescue cats.
