Ray Nagin is headed to jail.

A federal jury has convicted former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin on charges that he accepted bribes, free trips and other gratuities from contractors in exchange for helping them secure millions of dollars in city work while he was in office.

The jury on Wednesday convicted Nagin of 20 of 21 counts against him.

Nagin was indicted in January 2013 on charges he accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes and truckloads of free granite for his family business in exchange for promoting the interests of a local businessman.

Nagin infamously yelled “Where are the (federal government’s) buses?” during Hurricane Katrina, when his city government owned dozens of buses that should have been used to move New Orleans residents out of harm’s way.

Now he will be bused to a federal penitentiary.

Most ironic is that Sugar Ray was re-elected; he's a reflection of his constituents.

Lets hope there are many more (democrats) to follow in Ray's footsteps.

I wonder if he'll get to go to a 'chocolate' prison?

Raycist Nagin said that he's okay with everything. That's the problem! Demokkkrats are always okay with evil. Enjoy your stay Ray.

Obviously racist. We already put a disproportionate number of black men in jail. I say release him! Why put another brother in jail for a victim-less crime?

Another brother falls to the racist system. Damn the man. Now Ray eats salami sandwiches and Velveeta for 3 to 5.
