Was the Nanny Named Carmela?

Looks like the Feds might not want to Fuggedaboudit.

Forget the humiliation that has rained down on Bernie Kerik, his family, Rudy and those in the White House who were apparently blindsided by Kerik’s past. Now it turns out that the FBI may be investigating claims that Bernie’s connections with a New Jersey mob boss were a bit too close for comfort.

If David Chase included a fictional version of Kerik’s behavior in an episode of The Sopranos, it would have been written off as being too unrealistic.

Perhaps the big question in all of this is whether the soiling of this nomination and the collection of other dirt associated with former Rudy appointees will impact the mayor’s future political plans.

Concentration is important!
