Opinions on Shape of Bernard Kerik's head differ

At ABC's The Blotter Richard Esposito writes that Bernard Kerik expects that he will be indicted soon. He also quotes Rudolf Giuliani's claims without noting that they are false

As recently as Monday, Giuliani said that whatever Kerik's failings, he had been an effective corrections commissioner and an effective police commissioner for the city of New York.

"There were mistakes made with Bernie Kerik," Giuliani said in an interview with the Associated Press while in New Hampshire. "But what's the ultimate result for the people of New York City? The ultimate result for the people of New York City was a 74 percent reduction in shootings, a 60 percent reduction in crime, a correction program that went from being one of the worst in the country to one that was on '60 Minutes' as one of the best in the country, 90 percent reduction of violence in the jails."

Giuliani is, as usual, lying.
