Former NYC Police Chief Indicted
CNN reports that former New York City Police Chief, Bernard Kerik, has been indicted by a federal grand jury. Details of the charges against him are not expected to be available until the indictment is unsealed on Friday.
Prosecutors had been investigating Kerik for bribery and tax evasion. He admitted to misdemeanor charges of financial impropriety one year ago.
President Bush nominated Kerik to head the Department of Homeland Security in 2004. Kerik withdrew his name from consideration after allegations that he hired a nanny with questionable immigration status surfaced.
Kerik is a longtime friend and protege of Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Frenemy Giuliani has called his previous support of Kerik "a mistake."
