Nagin Indicted On Multiple Charges

The Times Picayune is reporting that former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin has been indicted on 21 counts of corruption by a federal grand jury, alleging that while in office, Nagin took cash bribes and gifts from two city contractors and used his gubernatorial authority to secure a granite installation contract from Home Depot’s Central City location. Nagin is the first mayor in New Orleans’ history to be indicted by a grand jury on corruption charges, which include “six counts of bribery, one count of conspiracy, one count of money laundering, nine counts of deprivation of honest services through wire fraud and four counts of filing false tax returns.”

Nagin’s indictment comes almost three years after he left New Orleans as mayor and relocated to the Dallas area. The investigation had been ongoing long before Nagin vacated the mayoral office.  According to the indictment, Nagin was interviewed by FBI agents in March 2009 with over a year left in his term.
