Securing City Contracts As Usual In New Orleans

Is this any different from the Morial Administration?

A City Council member has discovered that the Nagin administration gave a small contract to a company -- too small to need a Louisiana contractor's license -- then exponentially increased the company's take to more than $1 million.

The contractor, LSI also:

1. falsely claimed it had a Louisiana contractor's license when it bid for the work.

2. used a "fraudulent" contractor's license number in an initial bid to install and operate the cameras.

When will the federal investigation begin?
