    Rag New York Times Retracts Smear Story On Rudy

    Nice to see the NYT retract their smear article on Rudy about charging security trips for his then girlfriend and now wife to the Hamptons as untrue. They ran it on the front pages for weeks and now it comes out he charged it to the right account..Times put their retraction on page 35 today.:rolleyes:

    Judge has also said the goverment illegally interviewed Bernard Kereks Attorney which could lead to the charges dropped against him...Another story put in the back pages and not mentioned on one political show.

    These hit jobs on Rudy will backfire.

    Where is this article? This was in the Post the other day. Kerik is a convicted criminal and a disgrace.

    [QUOTE]Judge Stephen Robinson delayed making a final decision at yesterday's hearing in federal court in White Plains, but indicated he'll likely agree with prosecutors trying to get defense lawyer Kenneth Breen tossed off Kerik's case, paving the way for the feds to subpoena him.

    I will look for that, but you honestly think Kerik plead guilty because the media wants Rudy out?

    I don't know they ever proved it other than to throw it out there, as they do with most of their smear stories....

    Rudy should be thanking Mitt for being an idiot with all of his stupid quotes.

    Rudy is a scumbag. There's more than enough proven about him to convince any open minded person of that.

    The only thing that could convince you differently is if you were actually living in NYC prior to him becoming mayor.
