Early last year, former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was indicted on 21 counts of corruption. He’s just been convicted on 20 of them:

Jurors returned a guilty verdict against former New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin Wednesday in his federal corruption trial.

The jury made the announcement after just over six hours of deliberation, according to WDSU in New Orleans.

Nagin faced a 21-count indictment and was found guilty of 20. The jury returned a “not guilty” verdict for one charge of bribery.

Prosecutors couldn’t prove the 21st charge because Nagin stored that alleged bribe in William Jefferson’s freezer and the evidence somehow disappeared. Just kidding … I think.

Flashback a dozen years:

In inauguration remarks May 6, 2002, Nagin promised a City Hall “where permits and licenses are provided quickly, predictably and honestly; where contracts are awarded based on what you can do, not who you know.”

Time now to go read a number of mainstream media stories about Nagin’s conviction and then play “name that political party.”
