Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, the colorful and controversial spokesman for the city after the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005, is under investigation by federal authorities, a source with direct knowledge of the probe said.
The source told Reuters on Friday that several people linked to Nagin or the New Orleans city administration during his two terms as mayor ending in 2010 were cooperating with the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI
Nagin, who is black, was criticized for racial divisiveness after Katrina for urging residents to rebuild a "chocolate New Orleans,"

Anyone got the picture of all those buses that could have evacuated New Orleans?
Oh yes, Katrina will be brought up all the way to election day.
Obama is still running against Booosh.
Why did you clip out what he was under investigation for?
He must have really pi$$ed of someone in the Food Stamp President’s administration to have Eric the Bigot go after him ... Eric just doesn’t go after “his people” without a significant reason. Did Nagin keep some of the loot from a gun running, money laundering, drug dealing, sex trafficking, etc. Food Stamp President operation?

To save the moderators the trouble of having to reduce the post.
whether Nagin received favors or items of value from vendors to the city in return for contracts they received while Nagin was in office
“...Why did you clip out what he was under investigation for?...”
george76 did not say...
freddd did not say...
So here it is:
“The investigation includes whether Nagin received favors or items of value from vendors to the city in return for contracts they received while Nagin was in office, the source said.”
See how easy that is?
Ray Nagin killed Whitney Houston?
Here’s hoping he winds up as the sweetest piece of “chocolate” in Angola Prison.
Check out the archives in the local Paper (Piceheaun sp). They were investigating the fraud when Katrina hit.
Nagin crossed the Landreau and their housing “projects”. See post above.
Laudrea’s Uncle/brother is connected to BO in Chicago and the slum real estate of Valerie Jarrett IIRC.
Also the Rogers, that resigned earlier from the WH social department has the Chicago/New Orleans connection.
It’s quite of web of corruption and fraud all connected to political families and who’s who in the drug/real estate/money laudering.
Don’t expect them to look into Landreau, but they will go after Nagin as a favor to the family. Corruption in the city is second only to Chicago.
Never fear, he’ll just play his “I’m black so I get out of trouble free” card.
Thanks. One of my pet peeves. If someone can’t be bothered to post the meat and gist of the article then they shouldn’t post at all. Let someone more thoughtful do it.
Wow u nailed that evil family.
The current NOLA Mayor Mitch was in charge of LA state hurricane evacuations during Katrina .
The family is pure evil .
Actually ran across one article written by an investigative reporter right before Katrina hit. From there by following his article back it all seem quite clear. While documenting the Crime in Chicago on a research thread here, kept running across more and more on how the crime families in Chicago were tied to other towns: New Orleans, Philadelphia. Even states: Nevada, New Mexico.
Some names stuck out as they were repeated in various articles. When BO formed his government many came from those same areas. It’s connect the dot to dot to dot to dot.
If we as freepers can see these pattern, what must the FBI have had with all their wiretapes and insiders?
Send him a Greyhound bus.
the magic negro couldn’t carry Bush’s jock.
And I am not a fan of Bush.
