Bernie Kerik, former New York City police chief, is yet another example of how serving time in prison is a useful platform for pursuing a fresh career path. After serving three years for tax evasion and being dishonest with the White House, he is now an advocate of prison reform. Here is the coverage from Politico.
A pioneer in this was Nixon Administration power broker Chuck Colson. When nabbed during Watergate, he used his prison time to plant the seeds for his next career as an evangelical minister. He became a brandname in the spirituality industry.
This blog wishes Kerik well in his new professional focus.
