Bye bye Bernie

February 19, 2010

This sort of thing has to be really embarrassing for a policeman:

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik was sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to eight felony charges. Among these were tax fraud and lying to Bush administration officials during his unsuccessful nomination for US Secretary of Homeland Security in 2004.

The tax charges arose from $255,000 worth of renovations to his apartment from a municipal contractor that failed to report on his tax return. He now gets to learn about Homeland Security from the other side.
