Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Wednesday.
Nagin, 58, the two-term mayor who was the face of the city during Hurricane Katrina, joins a list of Louisiana elected officials convicted of misdeeds committed while in office. But he is New Orleans' first mayor to be convicted and sent to prison for public corruption.

Cue the “sad trombone” game show sound effect.
He’s going to live in Chocolate City now.
If they can get Ray, they can get Barack...... and Michelle
Il Duche got hung and so did Saddam. Mr and Mrs Ceausescu were stood against the wall.
I expect he’ll get a pardon when 0bama leaves office.
Mitch continued that Ray Nagin was only convicted of 20 of 21 charges and should have been given only a few days in jail... [ /sarc ]
RINO Mitch McConnell continued that there not BILLIONS or TRILLIONS of dollars but only about 100 MILLION dollars...
Mitch McConnell continued that 100 MILLION dollars in graft is pocket change these days...
[My Rant is because Mitch McConnell claims Thad Cochran easily won the Republican Runoff election with Chris McDaniel. Mitch McConnell feels that despite the corruption and fraud in that election that Thad Cochran should be declared the winner. Sounds like a RINO, acts like a RINO, is a RINO...]

Another thread if anyone interested in the comments there on
What a joke. Local media is full of sympathy. He DID IT FOR HIS FAMILY! To impress them...he had no criminal intent. He will appeal and will likely have some health problem before Sept. He got off easy and the racist charges are being made. He`s Obama lite-persecuted because he`s black! He “helped” the city and was a victim of Katrina! It`s sickening. Minimum security If he goes and sympathy galore. Basically he played the “I`m just a stupid black man” defense. I can`t watch the news anymore.
Wow! How strange!! I see no party affiliation in the article. Perhaps Nagin is a National Socialist.
“Hes going to live in Chocolate City now.”
Yeah, with his cellmate, Bubba The Big Cajun! They’s goin’ to be lots of chocolate!
About time. I just saw this on msn screen
Accepting bribes, huh, at the expense of the people harmed by Katrina.
No wonder those school buses didn’t go out......he was on the phone raking in the money.
“Wanna bet Nagin is out of prison in 2 years? “
All Blacks incarcerated then will get out. Voila, no more prison “crowding.”
Edwin Edwards served 8 of his 10 sentence so I believe that Nagin will serve 8.
And maybe they can get their mentors,their puppeteers,Bill and Bernardine( the ones who deserve endings a la Il Duce and the Ceaucescus)
