Skip to comments.Judge denies former New Orleans mayor’s bid to delay trial (Ray Nagin)

A judge on Friday denied an effort by former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to postpone his corruption trial, which he said had been compromised by inflammatory comments posted online by prosecutors.
Nagins argument for a delay stemmed from online postings that recently prompted a federal judge to order a new trial in a murder case involving five New Orleans policemen convicted in connection with the shooting deaths of two unarmed people at Danziger Bridge after Hurricane Katrina.
Nagin, who was mayor during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, is accused of receiving kickbacks in exchange for city contracts, and wire fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.
In the postings, Nagin and two other former New Orleans mayors were called the three stooges and referred to as incompetent.

I never would have guessed it.
What’s Nagin’s problem? It’s a “chocolate city” so everything should be sweet!
I’ll never visit or spend one penny in that town because of his “chocolate city” comment.
Somehow, I’m sure that it is Bush’s fault.
I spent time in NOLA long before Katrina and my lasting memory of the place is that it smelled bad.
ah yes Admiral Nagin, knew he would surface again...????...that came out just right
“ll never visit or spend one penny in that town because of his chocolate city comment.”
But there are lots of “chocolate cities,” and they all are relying on your pennies in their failing effort to keep afloat while continuing to hand out “free $h!t” to their residents. Try DC, Newark, Detroit, Baltimore, the list is endless. You see a major city in decline, and I will bet you that it has a chocolate population and most likely a chocolate city council. Sometimes it takes a very long time (just look at Detroit after thirty years of Coleman Young through Dave Bing), but they all eventually go under. Just a very sad commentary, but all too true.
Vast right wing conspiracy
N’awlins... My favorite writer characterized NOLA as a “sewer with a high crime rate”

Is he going to get a chocolate jury?
In 1988 while attending the Republican National Convention I got lost because the guy told me to take Nawlins Avenue. Those people can't speak English.
Pure chocolate is highly bitter. Smells great, though.
