Disgraced former NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik has been indicted by a DC grand jury for lying to White House officials when he was being vetted for his failed Secretary of Homeland Security appointment.

Kerik’s lawyer, Barry H. Berke told WCBS that the indictment was an example of the DOJ’s “overzealous pursuit of high-profile public figures.”

I can’t say I agree with that. But being indicted for lying to folks in the Bush White House Counsel’s office does seem a bit rich. And Kerik has so much real sleaze to work with.

So much sleaze, so little time.
