Falling On The Nanny Sword, II

If this article is true, now we know why former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik withdrew his name from consideration as director of Homeland Security and broke out the nanny defense on Friday: had an affair with famed publisher Judith Regan!

Geez.

Lori Byrd of PoliPundit writes that she’s amazed:

that Kerik would think that this stuff would not come out in a confirmation hearing considering the viciousness of congressional Democrats, especially after their recent losses. He should know that it is only Democrats that are allowed a free pass.

According to Drudge, New York’s governor Pataki is working behind the scenes to be considered for for the job; Jim Geraghty looks at how this would impact the Empire State’s governor’s race.
