    Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin under investigation: source

    And the hits keep coming. I wonder if Louisiana leads the pack for corruption investigations.

    NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, the colorful and controversial spokesman for the city after the devastating Hurricane Katrina in 2005, is under investigation by federal authorities, a source with direct knowledge of the probe said.
    The source told Reuters on Friday that several people linked to Nagin or the New Orleans city administration during his two terms as mayor ending in 2010 were cooperating with the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI.
    The investigation includes whether Nagin received favors or items of value from vendors to the city in return for contracts they received while Nagin was in office, the source said.
    Nagin, who was in Minnesota for a speaking engagement on Friday, spoke to a WWL-TV reporter at the New Orleans airport on his return. Asked about allegations he benefited personally while in office, he said:
    "They're three years old, and they keep coming up. I only want an opportunity to finally deal with them. Hopefully we can have an honest, open approach where truth and justice can prevail, but I'm starting to worry about that now," Nagin said.
    A Justice Department spokeswoman in Washington had no comment.

    I'm pretty sure Illinois still leads for corruption investigations, but LA may be a close second.

    The open confiscation of weapons from people I was against. The confiscation of weapons that were simply left behind for looters to take I was for. I simply can't believe that they did not document where the weapons came from and required proofs of purchase for their return.

    He was at my brother's college promoting some book he wrote. I told my brother to go in there and ask why he failed to utilize the buses available to him to evacuate citizens and then blame it on Bush and FEMA.

    Amazing, not a peep from the network media. Guess it didn't happen if it isn't on the TV.
    Ditto on an ethics investigation in Holder's regime.
