Democrat Crime Watch: Ray Nagan

Ex-New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin sentenced to 10 years

NEW ORLEANS — Former mayor Ray Nagin, the businessman-turned-politician who became the worldwide face of the city after Hurricane Katrina, was sentenced to 10 years in prison Wednesday.

Nagin, 58, was ordered to report to federal prison Sept. 8. Nagin, also ordered to pay restitution of $82,000, was found guilty Feb. 12 of fraud, bribery and related charges involving crimes that took place before and after Katrina devastated the city in August 2005.

Prosecutors immediately objected to the sentence, which falls well below typical guidelines that called for 15-20 years.

“What Ray Nagin did was sell his office over and over and over again,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Coman said outside the courthouse. “The damage that Ray Nagin inflicted upon this community … is incalculable. We as a community need not and should not accept public corruption.”

Liberty

“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of the government. The history of government is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is the history of the limitation of government, not the increase of it.”

– –  Woodrow Wilson

Liberal Education

“We want one class of persons to have a liberal education, and we want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity in every society, to forgo the privilege of a liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.”

North Korea Fights Global Warming!

President Obama wants to fight global warming by crashing the coal industry, and making electricity prices “skyrocket” for those of use who don’t regularly attend Obama fundraisers.

If the president were really serious about fighting global warming, he might take note of just how effective the North Korean Environmental Protection Agency has been in their efforts to save the planet:

Really, now, can you seriously believe that Obama has had his heart in fighting global warming?

Strange that a Obama-appointed judge would find a state election law that worked great for decades unconstitutional, or say he thought it would be declared as such, just so he could let Conyers back on.

Democrats never met a law they won’t ignore

Democrat Crime Watch: John Conyers

Conyers lacks signatures to make primary ballot

Number two Democrat might be denied a place on the election ballot . . . or not.

The SOS review concluded that at least petition signatures gathered by at least five circulators were invalid because they were either not registered to vote, not registered to vote while the petitions were being circulated or had addresses on the petitions that didn’t match their voter registrations. As a result, the SOS ruled Conyers had only 455 valid signatures, far short of the 1,000 required by state law.

Hmmm. Conyers might have to resort to a dirty trick, or two, to get back on the ballot. You think?
