This is the man Republican presidential front-runner Rudy Giuliani thought was right to be the top person in charge of Homeland Security for the entire United States of America.
Scandal-scarred former top cop Bernard Kerik turned down a deal with federal prosecutors that offered him less than two years in jail in return for a guilty plea to tax fraud, The Post has learned.
Kerik – NYPD commissioner under Rudy Giuliani, who recommended him for Homeland Security secretary in 2004 – rejected the deal when it was offered in the last few weeks, a law-enforcement source said yesterday.
The case involves gifts Kerik received while in office, his Homeland Security application, a mortgage application and tax returns.
I don’t just question Giuliani’s judgment of character, this flat-out disqualifies him for the job of president.
