A Nagin indictment would be welcome news
The former New Orleans mayor, who never said no to a meal paid for by a city credit card, is apparently the focus of a federal grand jury. A possible federal indictment is next. Obviously, even our inept ex-mayor is innocent until proven guilty, but it doesn’t look promising for Mr Chocolate city.
This much we know: at the very least the Feds are focusing in on 3 angles.
1- luxury travel and home lawn service provided by city venders.
2- the Nagin’s granite installation company receiving a Home Depot contract to install countertops.
3- that at least 2 firms doing business with City Hall gave equipment to Nagin’s granite company.
Apparently Nagin’s former tech director Greg Meffert is singing like a bird, as are convicted fellons Aaron Bennett and Frank Fradella. Both recieved millions in city contracts and work and apparenty paid the Nagin’s for it.
Right now, a Federal Grand Jury is deciding if Nagin was a crook or not. I’m betting an indicent is inevitable. And welcome news.
