Good try. He’ll be given a Presidential Pardon, then he’ll be appointed the White House Ethics Czar.

I’ll be surprised if the vermin ever does ten minutes’ worth of jail time. The one thing you can always count on is representatives of the Democratic [sic] party look after one another.

Name that Party!

This is the second article I read about Nagin's indictment and both do not mention his party affiliation. Hmmmm...wonder why?

Another 'Rat mayor ... no surprise. Nagin was mayor during Katrina ... the liberal media fawned all over him ... this is the kind of crap Bush had to put up with ... a corrupt mayor, a ditsy female 'Rat governor ... and he took the hit. Katrina was Bush's fault.

I’m not so sure it’s still a Chocolate City as ole Ray exclaimed.....Seems like I recently (last two years) seen more than one Louisiana License tag on cars belonging to refugees from there that never left. I’m sure Texas and other surrounding states are still benefited with their presence too.

Very likely true but still the funniest thing I've read in a long time! Somehow there is a different "flavor" to corruption in DC verses The Big Easy. DC corruption is evil and threatening. New Orleans (naorlns) is down home, just a couple a' good old boys trying ta' get buy, don't ya know...

This article is the other article I was mentioning. The article is comprehensive in it's details, but somehow in all those words, 'democrat' is not to be found.

I was there just a couple of weeks ago and it's become a lot nicer than pre-Katrina, albeit at the expense of Holder's people now populating Texas in greater numbers. It's not just the Quarter -- even Canal Street and the CBD are less thuggish nowadays.

The poorer sections of town were more flood prone, plus once the leechs tapped into a new vein they didn’t want to leave. It wasn’t only Texas, Massachusetts got a handful of them, who were expressing delight at the warm welcome they got here. Go home, now, please.

In a way, I’m glad to hear it has improved. I have mixed feelings about whether the areas in Texas, Georgia and elsewhere can accomodate their refugees on a permanent basis. We’re already inundated to the point we’ll all be speaking Mexican here in Georgia within 15 years.

Awkward: Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin offers hurricane prep tips
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2769712/posts

one good tip is to use waterproof bags to carry your bribe loot.
another is the giant plastic tubs make great floatation devices or Heineken transport systems.
