So now nobummer will take credit for busting Nagin??? The news will crawl all over that...go for it.
Poor teabagger, the attorney general of Louisiana had NOTHING top do with the case.

A federal grand jury has indicted former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin on 21 corruption charges including wire fraud, bribery, filing false tax returns, conspiracy and money laundering.

The charges announced Friday come from a City Hall corruption investigation that already has resulted in guilty pleas by two former city officials and two businessmen.

Federal prosecutors had tried to reach a plea deal with Nagin, but he refused. So they brought the case to a grand jury Friday.

"This office will continue its history of investigating and prosecuting public corruption" said U.S. Attorney Dana J. Boente. "This is an important part of the office's mission to serve the citizens of the Eastern District of Louisiana and make certain they have honest public officials."

"This indictment should serve as a reminder to current and former public officials that, in the interest of full accountability, the FBI pursues corruption even after an official leaves office," said FBI Special Agent Michael Anderson.

The potential penalties in this case are spelled out in a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, received by FOX 8 News Friday afternoon.

The teabagger states attorney didn't do squat.

Poor nutjob teabagger.

Letten, a Republican and career prosecutor who was first appointed U.S. attorney by Republican George W. Bush in 2001, is almost ...

First you say it was a states attorney, now it's a Bush appointed U.S. attorney?

Teabagger "facts" are constantly in a state of perpetual motion.

He'd say no, he's just copying Bush's anti-terrorist policies.

Then he'd say Excuse me while I go back to joining Ded Kennedy and John Smurfa in hell.

But it IS hard to lay down the groundwork, intelligence, and military penetration to make it happen.
Thankfully, all this was provided for Him from the get-go.
There is no way that either Clinton or Obama would have developed such a network to fight a 9/11/01 on their watch.
It's time to let this one fall into the hands of those that actually did the work, not the One that was provided everything He needed to say "Go ahead."
