This automatically qualifies him to be an Obama nominee for some high-ranking position.

His predecessor is far more odious, and before this is over Nagin will be the scapegoat for that bunch.

“This automatically qualifies him to be an Obama nominee for some high-ranking position.”

No, Nagin will be Blagojevich on the Bayou. Enough wrongdoing on his own to merit prosecution, but a handy patsy for a lot of others to launder their crimes as well.

Awkward: Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin offers hurricane prep tips

I’ve found it useful waterproof bags to carry your bribe loot .
Another is the giant plastic tubs make great floatation devices or Heineken transport systems.

This better not make it to the “jus’ dis” department. It will go the way of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case.

Former Mayor Ray Nagin Charged... NOLA

WWL TV story

snip...
Nagin, 56, is charged with a sweeping conspiracy count that includes 59 overt acts.

But time was of the essence for prosecutors because the first of six bribery counts was for $60,000 in bribes Nagin allegedly received from businessman Rodney Williams in exchange for city contracts.

The other bribery charges deal with a $50,000 payment by city contractor Frank Fradella, though his associate Michael McGrath, to Nagin's granite countertop business, Stone Age LLC. Two more bribery counts deal with deliveries of granite Fradella arranged for Stone Age from Tampa, Fla., to New Orleans.

The indictment also includes nine counts of honest services wire fraud for the nine monthly payments of $12,500 each from Fradella to Nagin for consulting services after he left office. There is a single count of conspiracy to commit money laundering and four counts of filing false tax returns from 2005 to 2008.

Nagin’s sons Jeremy Nagin and Jarin Nagin were not indicted but still face exposure, as does his wife Seletha Nagin because of the charge involving false tax returns. The sons' attorney, Clarence Roby Jr., declined to comment but has recently said that prosecutors had not approached his clients.

Pronounce his last name backwards then add “way to jail.”

Unlike him, the US Marshals know how to use school buses.

Where is Nagin living now? Right after Katrina he moved his family and enrolled his kids in school in Dallas.

I remember when he was re-elected after Katrina.

I could not believe it.

The people of NOLA deserved him.

There's nothing better than getting the whole family involved. As the saying goes, "the family that preys together stays together"...or something like that! They'll probably get their own family cell block!
