Woops! Bush's one-time pick for Homeland Security Secretary ("he has demonstrated a deep commitment to justice, a heart for the innocent, and a record of great success") is facing a second investigation
Bernard Kerik, the former NYC Police Commissioner whose nomination to head DHS imploded in December 2004 over a spate of problems (an illegal-nanny scandal
foremost among them), has already pled guilty
to accepting illegal gifts from a mobbed-up contractor. He got away with no jail time -- though he did suffer the indignity of the Manhattan Bernard B. Kerik Complex quickly and quietly dropping his name
from the jail.
This time, the FBI is looking into how hundreds of thousands of dollars disappeared from a nonprofit affiliated with New York City's Department of Corrections when Kerik headed the agency. Heckuva commitment to justice, Bernie!
