The federal indictment accuses Nagin of accepting more than $160,000 in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of a local businessman who secured millions of dollars in city contract work after the 2005 hurricane. The businessman, Frank Fradella, pleaded guilty in June to bribery conspiracy and securities-fraud charges and has been cooperating with federal authorities.

Nagin, 56, also is charged with accepting at least $60,000 in payoffs from another businessman, Rodney Williams, for his help in securing city contracts for architectural, engineering and management services work. Williams, who was president of Three Fold Consultants LLC, pleaded guilty Dec. 5 to a conspiracy charge.

GOOD.

The POS should die in prison.

It's a shame it took this long.

Taxpayers also suffered a $2.9 billion loss on the government’s investments in Chrysler, which exited the program in 2011. The company received a total of $12.5 billion in assistance through TARP’s auto programs.

TARP?

Who did that?

Poor teabagger.

When Katrina was going on my Grandfather said Nagin, and the Governor were both corrupt, and his Democrat friends said that was not true. Well, it is true, like all Democrats they love their kickbacks.

Fast and Furious and Benghazi combined with this Ray Nagin fraud case would have sealed the deal… if only this had come out prior to the election… maybe, just maybe Romney could have won after bringing this up in the second debate after Obama told him,“Please; proceed”.

FOX News Channel (FNC) has re-signed Karl Rove, former Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, announced Roger Ailes, Chairman & CEO. This new multi-year deal will extend through the 2016 presidential election.

In post-election coverage, Fox host Megyn Kelly confronted Rove on his dismissal of the Ohio results:“Is this the math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?

Poor Le Dimbulb, keep repeating that.

Your one step closer to taking Karl's place.

Le Dimbulb 2017, you just can't get any lower.

Perfect for FAUX.
