are in a world of trouble: Jeanine Pirro Under Criminal Investigation. WNBC.com reports: NewsChannel 4's Jonathan Dienst has learned Jeanine Pirro, the Republican candidate for New York Attorney General, has been under state and federal criminal investigation.
Dienst reported these allegations center on whether Pirro illegally spied on her own husband, Albert Pirro, while she held the office of the Westchester District Attorney.

[Pirro] came under the scrutiny of six different law enforcement agencies, including the New York Police Department, the city's Department of Investigation and prosecutors in the Bronx and Westchester.
According to documents now in the hands of several defense attorneys, Pirro and the former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik were apparently talking about planting a hidden device aboard her husband's boat. Her possible motive may have been to see if he was having an affair.
Oh, but there's more: Sources told NewsChannel 4 that in one conversation, Pirro complained that one of Kerik's employees was reluctant to board Albert Pirro's boat.
Jeanine Pirro suggests, "We can just simply say, if there is an issue, that I am redecorating it for our anniversary.” She complains that Kerik’s man is, “uncomfortable with that.”
Kerik responded by saying, “But Jeanine, I’m having the same f------g problem with everybody. Everybody is panic stricken because it’s you. I’ve gone out on a limb. I had two other people looking at this. It’s a problem.”
Pirro said, “What am I supposed to do, Bernie? Watch him f--k her every night? What am I supposed to do? I can go on the boat. I’ll put the f-----g thing on myself.”
Holy fucking shit--"I’ll put the f-----g thing on myself." It reads like a subplot in a Soprano's episode, no? Except it isn't fiction, and Pirro and Kerik are in a heap of trouble. You see, the report adds that "[s]ources said the FBI and Justice Department have been asked to look into whether Pirro and Kerik also might have violated federal laws." Remember when W nominated Kerik to head the Department of Homeland Security? Yeah, me too. Good times. And it looks like they are going to get better and better.
