    Post Another Misunderstood DemocRAT: Nagin Sentenced

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014...cmp=latestnews



    Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison for bribery, money laundering and other corruption that spanned his two terms as mayor -- including the chaotic years after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.


    U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan handed down the sentence Wednesday morning.


    Nagin was convicted Feb. 12 of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from businessmen who wanted work from the city or Nagin's support for various projects. The bribes came in the form of money, free vacations and truckloads of free granite for his family business.


    The 58-year-old Democrat had defiantly denied any wrongdoing after his 2013 indictment and during his February trial.
    Moments before sentencing, a subdued Nagin made a brief statement, thanking the judge for her professionalism. He made no apologies. "I trust that God's going to work all this out," he said.

    Louisiana has had 403 convicted public officials in the last ten years, I would love to see that list broken down by party.
