Kerik Indicted

It’s about damn time… ABC News reports:

A federal grand jury has voted to indict former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik on charges stemming from the acceptance of free rent and apartment renovations, tax evasion and lying on his application for the job as head of the Department of Homeland Security, two federal sources and a source involved in the defense told ABC News.

As news of the indictment spread, police in suburban White Plains, N.Y., prepared for an expected onslaught of media by setting up police barricades in front of the courthouse and a parking area for television trucks directly across from it, police officials said. And several of Kerik’s closest supporters planned to spend the evening with their friend before he turned himself into the government, sources said.

The indictment caps a wide-ranging federal probe into Kerik’s affairs that has spanned about a year. While it was not immediately clear what the specific charges were, the government’s case as it has been presented to the grand jury has multiple components that would be reflected in a multiple count indictment.

And, oh the company he’s kept…

Giuliani admits he made a “mistake” in not vetting Kerik but “said that Kerik’s indictment does not sully his mayoral record.” Hah! Talk is cheap Rudy… Talk is cheap.

    It’s too bad that they couldn’t have gotten Mukasey confirmed in time to head this off.
