Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

A Friend of a Friend

POSTED: 04:23 PM ET, 12/20/2007 by The Editors

This week's article by Post staff writers John Solomon and Matthew Mosk adds new detail to the saga of Bernard Kerik, the former New York City police commissioner whose friendship with Rudolph Giuliani has created headaches for the Republican presidential candidate.

Solomon and Mosk obtained and reviewed six boxes of evidence compiled by New York authorities during their criminal investigation of Kerik. Much of the evidence was provided by Lawrence Ray, a convicted felon and friend of Kerik who became a key witness against him. The evidence included photos showing that Kerik brought Ray into contact with Giuliani, e-mail invoking the mayor's name in connection with a contruction company with alleged mob ties that is at the heart of the Kerik case and documents showing how Ray arranged a meeting between Giuliani and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at Kerik's request.

Larry Ray is out for blood. He tries to say he wants the whole truth out when the feds apparently acknowledged he was being pretty evasive, to say the least. Sounds like this man was up to no good supposably retaining all these emails. Everyone knows how to edit emails and print them out to make them "look official." Sorry to tell ya Larry, it won't work.

Rudolph Giuliani is the anointed one of the moneyed interests to replace W. We are so screwed.
