Former NOLA Mayor Ray Nagin indicted

When you think of Louisiana, a few things come to mind.

Mardi Gras, Cajun food, swamp lands and the hilarious reality shows that come with them.

Oh, and corrupt politics, which could be a reality show in its own right.

Now, former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin – who held office from 2002 to 2010 – joins the likes of many of his predecessors.

He`s been indicted by a federal grand jury on 21 counts of public corruption, including usual bribery, wire fraud, money laundering, filing false tax returns, and conspiracy.

The allegations all relate to his dealings with city vendors following Hurricane Katrina.

City hall launched the investigation, which has revealed that Nagin didn’t act alone, of course.

Four other guys, two former city officials, and two businessmen, have already pleaded guilty.

After Nagin’s ‘service’, he was asked on CNN to ‘grade’ his performance as Mayor during Katrina.

Yeah, Some feds are gonna go ahead and give you a big fat “F”.
