WASHINGTON (CNN) -- One week after President Bush's nominated him to be secretary of homeland security, former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik withdrew from consideration Friday night after discovering a former household employee had a questionable immigration status.
Kerik said in a news release the immigration problem with the former housekeeper and nanny was discovered while he was completing documents required for his Senate confirmation.
He said he also learned "that for a period of time during such employment, required tax payments and related filings had not been made."

And this shit came out before they even looked through his NYPD records. Kerik had too many skeletons, probably a couple brutality complaints if my guess is right. We should consider this a victory for our side, and we should feel safer that this unqualified 'bully boy' will not be running Homeland Security.
Steve Gillard has more.
