    Giuliani Ally Kerik Reported Indicted

    Kerik is a true embarrassment and yet Rudy kept taking care of him.

    [QUOTE]Giuliani ally Kerik reported indicted in New York By Christine Kearney
    Thu Nov 8, 7:42 PM ET
    Bernard Kerik, a former New York police commissioner and protege of Republican presidential front-runner Rudy Giuliani, was indicted on corruption charges on Thursday, media reported, in a potential embarrassment for Giuliani's campaign.

    [B]Kerik, 52, and Giuliani, the former New York mayor, were also business partners and, with Giuliani's backing, Kerik was nominated by President George W. Bush in 2004 to be secretary of Homeland Security.[/B]

    Kerik later withdrew his name from nomination after admitting he failed to pay taxes on a nanny and other embarrassing disclosures about his personal life surfaced.

    WABC television reported that a law enforcement official said Kerik was expected to surrender on Friday in Westchester County, just north of New York City, where a federal grand jury was investigating his finances and business dealings while on the city payroll.

    WNBC television said on its Web site that Kerik would be arraigned on Friday.

    Prosecutors planned to accuse Kerik of trying to influence a probe of a contractor with suspected links to organized crime, other local media reported. The New York Times had reported on Wednesday that federal prosecutors would seek an indictment.

    Kerik's attorney, Kenneth Breen, was not immediately available for comment.

    [B]Giuliani served as Kerik's longtime mentor, promoting the former police detective to a series of positions, including the chief of city jails.[/B]
    Kerik was police commissioner in 2000 and 2001 and stood by Giuliani's side after the September 11 attacks.

    Giuliani, addressing a news conference in Dubuque, Iowa, on Thursday, responded briefly to questions about the expected indictment, which could tarnish public perceptions of Giuliani's judgment and choice of trusted colleagues.

    [B]"In that particular case, I pointed out I made a mistake," the former mayor said. "I made a mistake in not clearing him effectively and I take responsibility for that. When you are mayor of New York, you make 100,000 decisions. Some of them you make wrong."[/B]

    ELECTION ISSUE?

    The indictment of the longtime member of Giuliani's inner circle could prove costly to the Republican's presidential bid if his opponents seize the opportunity and make a case against the former mayor, said Democratic political strategist Hank Sheinkopf.

    "Kerik can certainly become a general election issue, and even a primary issue, but someone has got to make that happen," Sheinkopf said. "Just the fact that it happened is not going to change the dynamic of the election."

    [B]After leaving the police force in 2001 at the end of Giuliani's stint as mayor, Kerik joined his consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, and became a partner in the company's security arm, Giuliani-Kerik. He later formed his own security consultancy, the Kerik Group.[/B]

    Kerik was appointed to Iraq after the 2003 invasion, where he trained local police and was named interim interior minister in the U.S.-led provisional government after the fall of Saddam Hussein.

    Kerik pleaded guilty last year to state charges of accepting $165,000 on apartment renovations from a construction company that was attempting to land city contracts and which authorities were investigating for links to organized crime.

    CBTNY's posts show his feelings about anyone different than him. You agree with everything he says, you are guilty by association.

    Do you have an opinion about Kerik? Do you think he is being set up?

    A former 1st grad Detective and driver of Rudy, to then become the Commisioner of NYC jails and then the Commissioner. Oops forgot then taking free gifts from the mob while the a public servant.

    No story here, move on.

    Yes. If he is guilty he deserves to be punished.
