Okay, My Irony Meter's Broken Now

So you've probably heard that Rudy Giuliani probably spent several thousand dollars of New York City money so he could have security when he went to visit his mistress in Connecticut. But don't you believe it. Rudy Giuliani has a defender, and he's an unimpeachable source:
Bernard B. Kerik, who was Mr. Giuliani’s police commissioner when some of the charges were billed, said in an interview yesterday that the security detail’s travel expenses would normally come out of the Police Department’s budget.

“There would be no need for anyone to conceal his detail’s travel expenses,” said Mr. Kerik, who was indicted earlier this month on unrelated federal tax fraud and corruption charges. “And I think It’s ridiculous for anyone to suggest that the mayor or his staff attempted to do so.”

And no, that's not a link to The Onion. It's a story from the New York Times. But it can be hard to tell some days.
