Personally, I always thought this guy was full of shit. He was a poster child for sefl-promotion in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina while the citizens of New Orleans were being called refugees in the flooded streets they called home for a lifetime. He promised to be a progressive pundit for change, yet he shunned a democratic candidate running for Governor, in favor of the double-talking conservative Bobby Jindal.
Jindal, like Nagin is a high level hypocrite. He consistently runs his mouth about too much government spending, but had no problem begging for government assistance like a broke-down bitch when B.P. spilled its overpriced oil into The Gulf of Mexico. I’m positive, that deep down, Jindal probably has a problem with government aid being appropriated to the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
I hope they don’t discover that the alleged allegations against Nagin involve him gaining profits, at the expense of the citizens he promised to serve during the times they needed him the most. Who the hell does this guy think he is.? John Gotti? The link above sounds like an indictment against the Mafia. If found guilty, we saw Nagin come, and it will be a pleasure to see him go. ~Daryl
