ABSTRACT
Examines the causes that prevented George W. Bush's nominee, Bernard Kerik, from accepting the job as the head of Homeland Security. Official reason for his withdrawal from consideration which was over illegal alien status of a nanny and his failure to pay the necessary taxes on her salary; Belief that Kerik's make-his-own-rules style did not help his candidacy; Other problems in Kerik's background which included some questionable financial dealings and a warrant for his arrest for failure to pay on a condominium.
