Kerik Withdraws From Homeland Security

Citing various issues in his background check including questions about the immigration status of a nanny he employed and his financial interest in a company that did business with the Department of Homeland Security, Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik has withdrawn his appointment by President Bush as the new Secretary of Homeland Security.

Sounds like a good move considering the circumstances. For those of familiar with James K. Hahn, Mayor of my hometown of Los Angeles, he would never do something this correct when potential scandal hits.
