    Former NYC police chief Kerik jailed before trial

    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.

    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?

    How long did Kerik serve as Homeland Security Chief?

    Kerik withdrew from that nomination and his legal troubles became an embarrassment for Giuliani during the former mayor's unsuccessful run in 2007 and early 2008 for the Republican presidential nomination.


    Thank goodness..for us...Does that mean he never served a day in that position?

    Bernard Bailey "Bernie" Kerik (born September 4, 1955, Newark, New Jersey) is a former American law enforcement officer. Kerik was New York City Police Commissioner from 2000 to 2001, under Mayor Rudy Giuliani. In December 2004, President George W. Bush nominated Kerik as Secretary of Homeland Security. A week later, Kerik withdrew his nomination, explaining that he had employed an illegal immigrant as a nanny; subsequently, numerous allegations surfaced which would likely have led to a confirmation battle in the Senate. In 2006, Kerik pled guilty to two unrelated ethics violations after an investigation by the Office of the Bronx District Attorney, and was ordered to pay $221,000.

    Are you saying that Bush knew Kerick had a spotty record? Can you prove that? I mean, you boy hasn't vetted those idiot czars of his. He's got a couple commies, one dude that praised NAMBLA, another that worships Mao, not to mention the tax cheats that are working for him...LOL!!!! How many Dem administration appointtees had to step own because, oops, they didn't pay no taxes?...

    P.S. Bush isn't president anymore.

    Obviously Bush knew as much about Kerick as McCain knew about the quitter.

    But Kerick was "In the circle" so it really didn't matter to Bush.

    Yeah. Sure am glad Obama's nomination record is spottlessly clean.
