12:25 p.m.: Nagin outside the courtroom chatting. A verdict could be imminent if not immediate. Jenkins said that verdict is in, but the judge has not entered the courtroom, and the jury is still in the deliberation room.

Now Nagin’s back in the courtroom, leaning on the jury box next to his lawyers’ table. The courtroom is filling a little more.

“Was it a jury of his peers?”

E.G., was the outcome predetermined?

Blacks don’t like being defrauded anymore than whites do. But because they’re all Dems, they don’t usually get a chance to express an opinion...plus, don’t forget that they lived through Katrina and saw what his corruption and incompetence did for them. Or to them, should I say.

NOT GUILTY count was for the $10,000 check to Nagin’s sons.

1 p.m.: Nagin remains in his chair as the courtroom clears. Prosecutors are all smiles.
