Ex-New Orleans mayor Nagin charged with bribery, fraud

By The Associated Press

This article was published January 18, 2013 at 12:16 p.m.

— Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has been indicted on 21 corruption charges including wire fraud, bribery and money laundering.

The charges announced Friday come from a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen.

The counts include wire fraud, bribery, money laundering, filing false tax returns and conspiracy.

Nagin, a former cable television executive, was a political novice before being elected to his first term as mayor in 2002, buoyed by strong support from white voters.

Hurricane Katrina in 2005 elevated Nagin to the national stage, where he gained a reputation for colorful and sometimes cringe-inducing rhetoric.

With a resume like that, we should expect to see him working for the Obama regime shortly.

Yes it is all Obama's fault that a mayor last elected two years before Obama took office allegedly acted improperly under previous administration FEMA regime.
