Rudy Giuliani and Bernie Kerik

Rudy Giuliani will be facing some harsh criticism of his support of Bernie Kerik and his failure to remember being briefed about Kerik's ties to organized crime. It goes something like this:
  1. Giuliani hires Kerik as NYC police chief
  2. Giuliani recommends Kerik for Department of Homeland Security chief
  3. Kerik withdraws his name from consideration due to an unseemly extra-marital affair he was having
  4. Kerik pleads guilty to crime involving him and the aforementioned company with ties to the mob
Somewhere before #1, Giuliani was briefed about Kerik's ties to organized crime, but he "forgot." Then he hired Kerik to be New York City's top cop. These guys never learn. It all eventually catches up to them -- this filth, the lies, the deception, the "forgetfulness."

Despicable. I hope these stories come out about these louses. They do not deserve consideration for high public office.
