Nagin Corruption Trial Begins Today

Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin (D) will stand trial today on corruption charges, "barring any last-minute plea deal," the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

"Federal prosecutors charged Nagin in January 2013 with 21 counts of bribery, wire fraud and conspiracy, stemming from misdeeds they say go back to 2004. He could get more than 20 years in prison if prosecutors can prove he broke the law for a meager bounty of $300,000, a truckload or two of granite, a ride in a limousine and a few trips on a private jet."
