The Giuliani Files
By John Solomon
When New Jersey businessman Larry Ray began cooperating with New York and federal authorities in the criminal investigation of former New York police commissioner Bernard Kerik, he had visual evidence. Lots of it.
As Kerik's close friend and best man at Kerik's 1998 wedding, Ray kept all sorts of photos showing him and Kerik in casual settings, at weddings and other formal events -- and occasionally with Kerik's boss, then-Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who is now running for president.
Kerik and Ray parted ways in 2000 around the time Ray was being indicted in connection with a organized crime fraud scheme involving securities. Ray, who was since convicted and twice imprisoned on probation violations, has used his personal photos to try to corroborate for authorities his accounts of what he knew about Kerik's activities, and the times Kerik brought him into direct contact with Giuliani.
For instance, this decade-old photo, which accompanied this morning's Washington Post investigation into the relationship between Kerik, Ray, and Giuliani, shows Ray with the former mayor, as well as Ray's friend Carmen Cabell:
And when Ray recounted the time he helped arrange a meeting at Kerik's request in December 1997 with Giuliani and Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev, he provided these photos:
These other photos show Ray and Kerik at work, at play, and at Kerik's wedding.
