Oopsies...looks like ol' Roger may not be above the law after all. Authorities are reportedly considering bringing charges against Roger Ailes for advising Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators about Bernie Kerik.

The chairman of Fox News may have committed a federal crime, according to legal documents filed by attorneys for a former News Corporation employee.

Affidavits filed in a lawsuit against a former News Corporation employee say that News Corp. executive Roger Ailes advised former publishing executive Judith Regan to lie to federal investigators about an affair she had with Bernard B. Kerik.

Kerik, a longtime ally of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, was at the time being vetted as the next possible Homeland Security secretary.

Ailes's goal in asking Regan to lie about the affair was meant to help protect Giuliani's presidential ambitions, The New York Times noted in its coverage of the allegations.

Better still, Regan taped their conversation, the affidavits claim.

He apparently forgot the ultimate rule: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. What can I say? Karma can be a real bitch, Roger.
