NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly is reportedly in "advanced talks" to become the senior security officer at JPMorgan Chase, the New York Post reports, "and he may leave his current post before Bill De Blasio is sworn in." The job, which would focus on cybersecurity, could bring in seven figures for Kelly and unite him with similarly embattled CEO Jamie Dimon, who knows all about the fickleness of New York City success and popularity. With Kelly's legacy — and the constitutionality of stop-and-frisk — undecided, he might as well go cash in at a different polarizing institution. Such a partnership makes almost too much sense.
