This investigation about the New York correction commissioner, Bernard Kerik, came together as a result of more than two years of investigation into corruption and the Department of Correction. The series reveals how Kerik accepted a number of gifts and cash, and failed to file proper public disclosures. The Secretary of Homeland Security nominee is also accused of having ties to the mob, having an extra-marital affair in an apartment two blocks from Ground Zero, on top of violating a number of city ethics rules. On Dec. 10, just before the stories were to be published, Kerik withdrew his nomination for Secretary of Homeland Security and eventually resigned from Rudolph Guiliani's consulting firm.
