home-depot-nagin-signjpg-923766868bd942e4Former New Orleans mayor, C. Ray Nagin, was sentenced today to ten years in federal court by Judge Ginger Berrigan.

Many legal pundits believed Nagin would receive more than ten years, given the severity of the crimes, the number of offenses, the seriousness of the offenses in light of the difficulties of the Hurricane Katrina rebuild and for other reasons.

 However, Judge Berrigan, citing his abrogations and violations  of his duties to the public, nonetheless, opted to render a lighter sentence.

For the  City of New Orleans, despite the more leniant sentencing, it was a moment of relief in the long legal drama spanning almost a decade. 

Many in the city were glued to television and radio broadcasts while marking the history of the moment,by making their voices heard and read online via social media.

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching.
