DEMOCRAT Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin indicted on charges of bribery and pocketing more than $200,000 from city contracts

Free Trips to Hawaii and the Caribbean

From Eric Dondero:

The Washington Times is reporting, "Former New Orleans mayor charged with bribery, fraud":
More than a decade ago, Ray Nagin was elected mayor of New Orleans on a vow to root out corruption in a city plagued by decades of it. On Friday, the former mayor was indicted on charges he lined his pockets with bribe money, payoffs and gratuities while the chronically poor city struggled to recover from Hurricane Katrina’s punishing blow.

< The federal indictment alleges that city contractors paid Nagin more than $200,000 in bribes and subsidized his trips to Hawaii, Jamaica and other places in exchange for his help securing millions of dollars in work for the city.

WGNO in New Orleans has some early reaction:
Reaction from the public — to the federal indictment of former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, at least on the surface, appears to be divided along racial lines.

“I’ve always thought he was kind of crooked and I think he deserves what he gets,” John St. Clergy said.

“At this point he’s only charged; he’s only indicted so he has a chance to fight his way through the court, Dave Sinclair said. “Not knowing, not seeing the evidence against him then obviously we have to withhold our opinion.”

I hope he gets his crooked black ass kicked in prison and beat to death.

No good fucking bastard.

I certainly hope the GOP uses him as an example of Democrat corruption.
