Former New Orleans mayor Nagin charged with bribery, fraud

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, who captured the drama of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 with an "SOS" call to the nation, was indicted Friday on 21 federal corruption charges, including bribery, money laundering, fraud and filing false tax returns.

Nagin (pictured) allegedly defrauded the city through "a bribery and kickback scheme" in which he received checks, cash, wire transfers, personal services and free travel from businessmen seeking contracts and favorable treatment from the city, the 25-page federal indictment says.

    Those are examples of extreme dishonesty to justify stealing one's handle.
    "LURKER. Person who logs-on to a news blog and lurks for certain individuals. A married woman lurking for a man, for example."
    Or a man who is looking for a to brainwash.

    Those are examples of perverting one's handle to justify getting out of being accused of hijacking. Guilty as charged, Philip.

    Get a clue, KR. All I did was post original nomenclature. She made it personal, as usual.

      And this, "Those are examples of perverting one’s handle to justify getting out of being accused of hijacking." is a furthe definition of your original nomenclature.
      Nothing remotely personal about it.

    Posers have and always will be fake news bloggers.
    Exact copies of usernames have and always will be called hijackers. (not exact, no in everyone knows it wasn't you. It was bust me making fun of Banazis.
    Now Donna, if these odd-hour posts of mine don't get deleted after they post, and i assure you, in the past couple of weeks 85% of my posted comments get deleted now...hear me out and reply to what I say rather than who you think I am. You were wrong before and so could be wrong again. A couple of years ago, you called me your GTG for inside info. (go to guy) Perhaps you can wrap your mind around my next comment and reply in kind.
