Has anyone read about the shenanigans of former DA Harry Connick? Who elected this guy and many others who abused their power? Corruption is not a harmless thing!

Because in Louisiana, we like our rice and our politics dirty! I think a former governer once said "Louisiana voters don't want good politics, they want good entertainment!" Does that sum it for you? Seriously though, I know its sad...

Haha good question lol. I'm a New Orleans native (well, Metairie) but I go to school in Mississippi. Once I graduate my location will be changing either back to New Orleans or wherever I get a job or go to grad school.

Most people here won't admit it, but the implicit attitude here for a long time has been "we know you're going to steal, but as long as it's not too much, and you still get the job done, we'll look the other way". IMO this is why people hate Nagin so much- he stole a lot, and did nothing- and he wasn't even a good thief. Add that to his brash attitude and promises to be the "anti-corruption" candidate and you have a recipe for some Federal jumpsuits.

They don't call New Orleans the northern most Caribbean city for nothing. But really I think a lot of it is exaggerated. It's also exaggerated to where people seem to think this a New Orleans specific thing. I mean really all of Louisiana has been pretty bad with corruption (and a good amount of other places too).
