Bernard Kerik, President Bush’s nominee for Homeland Security Director, has withdrawn himself from consideration for the post because he hired an illegal alien as a housekeeper and nanny to his children.
Too bad. With his typical American boot strap story and his experience as top cop during the Rudy Giuliani Administration in New York City—including on 9/11—he seemed to be the ideal candidate for the position. But he’s toast now, and, unfortunately, rightly so.
It’s serious business now.
