Former NYC police chief Kerik jailed before trial | U.S. | Reuters
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik was jailed on Tuesday when a federal judge revoked his bail a week before his trial on conspiracy and fraud charges was due to begin.
The judge agreed to a request to jail Kerik for leaking sealed information to a legal defense fund-raiser -- information the fund-raiser shared with the Washington Times newspaper.
Kerik was a close friend of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and was New York's police commissioner the day of the September 11, 2001, attacks. His career began to unravel upon being subjected to background checks when President George W. Bush nominated him in 2004 to become Homeland Security secretary.
This is not a good sign.
Bush's homeland Security secretary in jail on conspiracy and fraud charges.
Is this the quality of people that Bush chose to oversee homeland Security?
Why do I NOT find this to be suprising in the least?
