Saw this over on Oliver Willis. Bernie Kerik's going to the bing for less-than-heroic behavior

Former New York City police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who has been free for months since pleading guilty to eight felonies, likely is heading back behind bars.

Kerik, who was hailed as a hero alongside former Mayor Rudy Giuliani after the Sept. 11 terror attacks and nearly became chief of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, admitted in November that he lied to the White House, filed false taxes and committed other crimes.

Federal Judge Stephen Robinson told him that a prison term was ‘a mortal lock.’ Sentencing was scheduled for Thursday morning in federal court in White Plains.

See, this is just another example of Obama hurting America.
