Breaking: Kerik-Pirro involved in federal investigation

Running for what, Rudy?

Feds Investigating Jeanine Pirro

ALBANY, NY (AP) -- Republican state attorney general candidate Jeanine Pirro has been told she is under federal investigation for allegedly plotting to secretly record her husband, Albert Pirro. That's according to two people familiar with the situation.

No recordings were ever made, said the two people, who spoke to The Associated Press only on condition of anonymity.

Pirro has scheduled an afternoon conference in Manhattan to discuss, quote, ``an official investigation into her personal life.''

The sources said authorities last year overheard Pirro having a telephone conversation with former New York City Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, a private security consultant.

They said Pirro suspected her husband of having an affair and that she and Kerik discussed possibly placing a recorder in a room to listen in on him.

The sources said FBI agents approached Pirro last week and told her she was under investigation by the United States attorney's office in Manhattan.

A spokeswoman for US Attorney Michael Garcia said she could not confirm that
Oh man, I walked in the door and saw this nonsense on TV. Pirro, who was just embarassed for refusing to revue the case of an innocent man locked up for 16 years, which her successor did, and then having her husband arrested for speeding twice. Now, she's involved in illegal wiretapping, allegedly. With Bernie Kerik no less.

So I wonder what AG Cuomo will do when he takes office?
