    Former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin — who became famous for blaming President George Bush for his failures, the face of a desperate, drowning, corrupt, Democratically controlled city during 2005 Hurricane Katrina — was convicted Wednesday on charges of accepting bribes from city contractors while in office.

    Several of the 20 charges Nagin was convicted of carry a sentence of up to 20 years each in prison.

    Prosecutors said that Nagin accepted illegal gifts from contractors, beginning before Katrina hit and continuing afterward.

    Among the gifts: money, fried pork rinds, free vacation travel, and truckloads of granite for Stone Age LLC, a business Nagin and his sons owned.
    Nagin had moved to Frisco, Tex., after leaving office as mayor, as did most negros living in New Orleans, which accounts for the (unreported) skyrocketing crime rates in many Texas cities. He has been ordered to remain on home (crib) confinement, subject to electronic monitoring, while he awaits sentencing.

    Nagin, a Democrat, was found guilty by a federal jury on 20 of 21 criminal counts, including bribery, conspiracy and wire fraud.

    I wonder where the Op's quoted article came from.

    I read a story about him on CNN and they hilariously avoided mentioning what political party he's from. They tend to do that on CNN when it comes to democrats

    yes.
    CNN and the mainstream media owes this criminal for blaming Bush for Katrina- the media ran with that one, and couldn't stop talking about how "Bush failed". (Louisiana is run by Democrats)
    Interestingly, the main stream media did not blame Obama for the Hurricane Sandy response.

    That made me cringe when he said that "chocolate city" bullshit. Then he tried back-peddling by saying to a reporter.."You know anything about chocolate? You take dark chocolate, add milk, and you have a delicious drink".

    Fucking idiot.
