Hang on.....I have snot running down my face because I just laughed so hard I couldn't control my bodily functions....ok....better.
Oyster makes the bestest observations here....so I'm subbing posting out. But don't worry, we bloggers are very careful to list all of our subs.
As Mr. Nagin not-so-subtly plays the race card and calls for the African-American community in N.O. to rise up against the IG office under allegations of racism, I would just ask you to look back through the posts on this blog and the names involved before you make that decision. I think there is a pretty good track record which shows you that most of the people Nagin has pushed money to are white republicans.
I have a hunch the results of the coming federal probe may spell that out much more clearly....I also have a hunch Nagin knows this and he's circling the wagons in a pathetic attempt to garner a sympathy vote in the court of public opinion. Don't buy it....when it comes to business acumen, cronyism, and back room dealings....Ray Nagin is whiter than my hillbilly ass.
One of the things which I always find annoying is when people tell me to "follow the money!" Yeah...I get that....but its not exactly easy. Especially with an administration that is as transparent as the river which runs through our city.
However, over time we (the citizens, da paper, the TV, the blogs) have been able to actually "bring things to the surface". And if you follow the money trail that has surfaced it becomes pretty apparent that the major recipients of Nagin's favor are cracker-ass-crackers...saltine....balooga.....white....and I don't mean Veronica....I mean white like Meffert....and that's flippin' white.
Don't be fooled by this crap he's spewing...there is no racist conspiracy in the IG's office. You want proof? Look at the difference between the IG's report on the crime cameras and then Nagin's internal audit. Nagin's internal audit blamed everything on a black man and sheltered the white guys pulling the strings. The IG's report exposed the white owned companies behind the curtain.
Folks its not black or white....its green.
