Hell hath no fury than Judith Regan pissed. Regan filed a lawsuit against Murdoch's media empire for being summarily fired after the O.J. Simpson's "If I Did It" debacle. Not surprising, especially if you're familiar with the way Regan does business. But leave it to her to make you want to break out the popcorn and enjoy the show.

It appears that Ms. Regan has more than the usual wrongful termination complaints... DKos:

Book publisher Judith Regan, who carried on a longtime affair with Rudy's close confident, the indicted Bernard Kerik, has claimed in a lawsuit filed today that a senior executive at Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. encouraged her to mislead federal investigators about her relationship with Kerik during his bid to become homeland security secretary in late 2004. As the New York Times reports, Regan also claims that the News Corporation has "long sought to promote Mr. Giuliani's ambitions."

The Smoking Gun has the filing for your perusal. I think the FCC might need to address such a blatant usage of the public airwaves (and trust) to promote a specific political candidate, don't you?
