I have long thought that Rudy had a Kerik problem.

Well, it just got worse: Bernard Kerik: America’s Cop Indicted, which leads to the legitimate question: How Will Media Play Kerik’s Indictment?

I can’t help but think that stories about Kerik have to include Giuliani, as not only was he the Department of Corrections commissioner and the police commissioner under Giuliani (appointed, in both cases, by Giuliani), but he worked with Giuliani after they both left New York City’s government. Indeed, they had, for a time, an LLC called Giuliani-Kerik, an affiliate of Giuliani Partners. Kerik was the CEO of said affiliate. In short, theirs was hardly a casual relationship.

Giuliani is spinning the situation as a learning experience: Giuliani Admits ‘Mistake’ in Case of Indicted Top Cop.
