Former New Orleans mayor indicted on federal corruption charges - CNN.com

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who captured the drama of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 with an "SOS" call to the nation, was indicted Friday on 21 federal corruption charges, including bribery, money laundering, fraud and filing false tax returns.

Nagin allegedly defrauded the city through "a bribery and kickback scheme" in which he received checks, cash, wire transfers, personal services and free travel from businessmen seeking contracts and favorable treatment from the city, the 25-page federal indictment says.

As part of the alleged bribes, Nagin's family members received a vacation in Hawaii; first-class airfare to Jamaica; private jet travel and a limousine for New York City totaling $23,500; and cellular phone service, the indictment said.

Nagin's family-owned granite-business Stone Age LLC allegedly benefited in the corruption, too, the indictment said.

Nagin could not immediately be reached for comment.

According to the indictment, the bribing businessmen allegedly received city contracts of $1 million for consulting, more than $3 million to build a project at Louis Armstrong International Airport, and $1 million for another airport project, the indictment said. Other contracts were for sidewalk repairs in the French Quarter and professional services, authorities allege.

Among the conspiracy charges is an accusation that Nagin awarded "no bid" work to a city contractor who provided "concealed and direct campaign monies" to Nagin, the indictment says.

Nagin allegedly received bribes from city contractors in the amounts of $60,000, $2,250, $50,000 and $10,000, the indictment says.

He also is accused of receiving a bribe in the form of granite inventory from a city construction contractor.

Nagin faces nine counts of honest services wire fraud, alleging he received nine wire transfers amounting to $12,500 each that were bribes or kickback payoffs from the same city construction contractor in 2010 and 2011, the indictment says. Those bribed totaled $112,500.

In his 2005 tax return -- the same year that Katrina hit the Gulf Coast -- Nagin allegedly filed a false tax return claiming his income was $156,278, the indictment says.

He is also accused of filing false returns for 2006 listing his income at $170,364, for 2007 with an income of $31,163, and for 2008 with a $143,852 income, the indictment said.

What a shame... he seemed like such a breath of fresh air when he rode into office. Then the B.S. quickly started, first when we found out he really wasn't a CPA as he had claimed.. then the Katrina fiasco. Fucking dumbass.

He'll get out, run for re-election or a higher office and win.

Another Black mayor leaving his "Chocolate City" to take a ride on the 'Hersey Highway'.
Why don't they simians who keep electing these imbeciles have a tailor come in and measure the mayors for their orange jump suits on their first day in office.
"Hi. I'm a Black dude and you-all are Blacks so I know you'll vote for me. No I don't have any experience. And if I'm lucky I can rob you-all of thousands of tax dollars and I won't get caught.".

At the height of the disaster Nagin and his 'crew' were holed up in luxury penthouses in NY going to the Nikes game.
Hundreds of school buses were half under water b/c they didn't have any diesel b/c one of Nagins 'crew' who was supposed to make sure the buses always had fuel had pocketed the money set aside for the fuel.........TWICE!!!!! so the City officials refused to put any more 'up-front' money towards the fuel cost. This is the type of criminal activity the mayor of Detroit....sorry I'm getting too many Black mayors who are in prison on corruption charges mixed up are famous for. I meant NO.

Ah, schadenfreude at its finest. Just feel it. Let it wash over you.

Ray Nagin, the Barry Obama of the chocklet city of 'Nawlins, whom the totally unbiased media covered for along with Gov. Blanco in order to keep the light of their shared fiasco shinning anywhere but on them. All praise the dynamic dimocrat duo!

My hope is Nagin goes to the slammer and the big bubba cellmate who fancies his chocklet ass is of the vanilla variety. And he treats Ray baby like his pet bitch.

Yep. The racists post their rancid stupid bullshit and the left-wing radicals then use that shit to smear all conservatives.
