ABSTRACT
The article reports that some residents and community activists are expressing support for Bernard Kerik's decision to withdraw his name from consideration as Secretary of Homeland Security. Less than 72 hours after U.S. President George W. Bush tapped Kerik to serve as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, the former top cop bowed out of the selection process, informing the White House that his nomination could face serious scrutiny. Kerik told Bush that he had failed to inform the White House that taxes he deducted from the wages were never reported as required by law.
