Letter: aking bribes
February 18, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter


Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was found guilty of 20 of the 21 counts against him involving a string of crimes committed before and after Hurricane Katrina. “The Democrat, who left office in 2010 after eight years, was indicted in January 2013 on charges he accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes — money, free vacation trips and truckloads of free granite for his family business — from businessmen who wanted work from the city or Nagin’s support for various projects”(“Ex-New Orleans mayor convicted of taking bribes” in the Feb. 13 issue of the Daily Journal).

What makes this story so sad is if Ray Nagin was “Congressman Nagin,” instead of Mayor Nagin, then everything he was found guilty of is just the everyday way the elected officials do business in the District of Criminals. No indictment, no trial, no problem; just business as usual.
