Raise your hand if this surprises you.

A federal grand jury charged former Mayor Ray Nagin Friday with 21 counts of bribery, conspiracy to deprive citizens of honest services, money laundering, wire fraud and filing false tax returns, alleging that while in office, Nagin took cash bribes and gifts from two city contractors and leveraged a granite installation contract from Home Depot as the retailer was negotiating tax breaks and other items with the city.

Other than that he was always on the up and up. He’s already refused a plea deal.

Maybe he’s hoping for a heavily chocolate jury.
