The former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik had his bail revoked today. He was allegedly trying to influence the jury pool.

Bernard Kerik had been out on $500,000 bail. U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Robinson stated that by posting confidential documents on his defense website, Kerik could not be trusted to abide by a court order barring disclosure of that kind of information.

“My fear is that he has a toxic combination of self-minded focus and arrogance, and I fear that combination leads him to believe that his ends justify his means,” Robinson said. “The failure of Mr. Kerik to abide by the direct order of this court … must be appropriately addressed.

“He sees the court’s rulings as an inconvenience, something to be ignored, and an obstacle to be circumvented.”
