Federal prosecutors are scheduled to seek a grand jury indictment on Thursday of Bernard B. Kerik, the former New York police commissioner, on a list of charges that include tax fraud, corruption and conspiracy, according to people who have been briefed on the case. ~The Caucus
Since Giuliani just two days was crowing about what a good job Bernie Kerik did for him when he was mayor and the “ultimate results” achieved despite Kerik’s “mistakes,” this news is liable to cancel out whatever advantage Giuliani received from this Robertson endorsement. It will revive the “Giuliani has terrible judgement in choosing personnel” meme and introduce a “Giualiani associates with criminals” meme. Anything that dispels or obscures his aura of supposedly great leadership and executive experience is a serious problem for his campaign.
