Bada Bing!

Oh, those pesky U.S. Attorneys! Looks like they are annoying Bernie Bada Bing with a couple of possible charges

1. Tax evasion
2. Conspiracy to commit wiretapping (on behalf of former N.Y. Senate and/or Attorney General Wannabe Jeanine Pirro -- a woman with her own Bada Bing! problem), and
3. Filing false information to the government as part of his nomination for Homeland Security director.

But the WaPo article mentions something I hadn't heard before:
About a year earlier, Pirro, then the Westchester County district attorney, ordered the A&P supermarket chain to hire the Giuliani-Kerik security firm as part of a settlement agreement in a case involving underage alcohol sales. The security firm was ultimately paid $43,000, according to a knowledgeable source who spoke about the terms of the contract on the condition of anonymity.
Of all the security firms in all the towns in all the world, she just happens to order them to hire Bada & Bing, Inc? It would be interesting to hear more about these settlement negotiations -- from A&P, not from Pirro.
