#1 Nagin's mistake is that he was a mayor and not a Congresscritter, an office which brings significant de facto immunity for flaunting 'laws' about behaviors concerning 'favors' for business or grants or largess with the taxpayers money.

#2 See those buses he stole should have been painted white or some other color, then he would have been able to ride out the corruption a bit longer.

#3 Hopefully we can have an honest, open approach where truth and justice can prevail, but I'm starting to worry about that now," Nagin said.
With an Obama DoJ making up rules as they go, I would definately be worried, too.
#4 His mistake was he alienated the black community to get elected, then he p*ssed on the white community, so no amount of bribes could protect him anymore.

#8 ...as in the exception proving the point. It at least showed that something else actually did exist. Be no point in worry about party labels if only one existed.

I don't think he has a thing to worry about. As a twofer (Democrat and black), he's definitely one of what Holder refers to as "my people." And under the regime's rules, "my people" have a perpetual Get Out of Jail Free card.
