The (Almost) Homeland Security Chief Pleads Guilty

This morning back in my old haunts of Bronx Supreme Court, Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges for accepting $165,000 worth of remodeling on his apartment from a company attempting to do business with New York City, and for failing to report a $29,000 loan to finance the apartment. That sure was a pretty quick turn around from standing next to the President at a Cabinet nomination to standing next to an attorney in criminal court.

Update: NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg has removed Kerik's name from Manhattan's jail complex, which Mayor Rudolph Giuliani had re-named in Kerik's honor in 2001.
