    Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin indicted

    NEW ORLEANS Ray Nagin, former New Orleans mayor and the public face of the battered city in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, has been indicted by a grand jury on 21 federal corruption charges.

    The indictment, released Friday, alleges Nagin awarded lucrative city contracts to

    contractors in exchange for more than $200,000 in kickbacks and first-class trips to Hawaii, Jamaica and Las Vegas.

    Nagin, 56, served two four-year terms as mayor, from 2002 to 2010, and currently lives in Frisco, Tex., outside Dallas. If convicted on all charges, he faces more than 15 years in prison. Nagin becomes the first mayor in the city's 295-year history to be indicted under federal corruption charges....

        That will be what they can prove in court.
        In the realm of spirit, seek clarity; in the material world, seek utility.

          IMO, One of the saddest events in our nation's history, the way that hurricane was handled...

            And the failures started with Ray Nagin, though he never owned up to a single bit of the disaster.

              And yet watching the tv news stories, reading the print stories, the media conveniently omit his party affiliation.
