Nagin Under Federal Investigation

A federal grand jury is investigating whether city vendors gave former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (D) gratuities in return for contracts they received while Nagin was in office, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

"The federal probe is zeroing in on Nagin along three parallel tracks: luxury travel and home maintenance provided by city technology vendors; a granite countertop installation contract that Nagin's family company got from The Home Depot; and the possibility that at least two businesses with City Hall dealings arranged for the delivery of free equipment or materials to the Nagin family's now-defunct firm."
