Former National Security Adviser Samuel R. Berger yesterday stepped down from his position as adviser to Sen. John Kerry, one day after he publicly admitted taking classified documents from the National Archives.
"Mr. Berger does not want any issue surrounding the 9/11 commission to be used for partisan purposes," said his lawyer, Lanny Breuer. "With that in mind, he has decided to step aside as an informal adviser to the Kerry campaign until this matter is resolved."

Please. Let's be honest here. Berger broke the law and it got out and Kerry dropped him like a hot potato. Let's not paint it like Berger is being a bastion of integrity.
