Obama Says He's Considering Ray Kelly for DHS Secretary


Pres. Obama told Univision in an interview last night that he's open to the idea of NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly–currently overseeing a mass violation of New Yorkers' Fourth Amendment rights–succeeding Janet Napolitano as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

The New York Daily News reports

In an interview Tuesday with the New York affiliate of Spanish-language network Univision, Obama called Kelly "one of the best there is" in law enforcement. "Mr. Kelly might be very happy where he is. But if he's not, I'd want to know about it — 'cause you know, obviously, he'd be very well-qualified for the job."

Reason on stop-and-frisk. Reason on Ray Kelly.
