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?

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?

Since leaving office in 2010, speculation has swirled that Nagin would eventually become the target of a federal probe after a former associate and close personal friend pleaded guilty to conspiring to defraud the city.

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?

The Landreau family is who needs to be investigated.
The buses were a result of Aunt Phillis Landreau who as president of the local school board would not release the buses. The houses in the ninth ward were mostly rental properties own by three corporations that repeatedly used HUD funding to revitalize (but who never got the repairs done) Charged the government large sums for rent through HUD. All set up by Ol man Landreau who set the HUD program up under Jimmy Carter.

Check out the archives in the local Paper (Piceheaun sp). They were investigating the fraud when Katrina hit.

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.

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.

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?
