Nagin, Wife Held In China For Swine Flu

From the New Orleans Times-Picayune:

Nagin, wife, staffer quarantined in China

June 07, 2009

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, his wife, Seletha, and a member of the mayor’s entourage are being held in quarantine in Shanghai, China, after a person on Nagin’s flight over came down with swine flu symptoms, City Hall reported…

The passenger, who was not identified, is being treated.

As a precaution, the mayor, Seletha Nagin and an unnamed member of the Mayor’s Executive Protection Unit have been placed in a designated quarantine location in Shanghai, Quiett said…

Nagin was scheduled to travel to Sydney, Australia, where he is to deliver a keynote address and lead a panel discussion on climate change at the 2009 National Summit of the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney…

Six people — including the mayor and his wife — took the trip. Only three people from that group were quarantined, however, because of their proximity to the person with the flu symptoms, Quiett said.

What exactly does Mr. Nagin know about climate change? Or does he just know a good boondoggle when he sees it?

And just who is paying for these six people to go on this far-flung vacation?

And while we are asking questions, did Mr. Nagin ever move his family back from Dallas?

(Thanks to CGardner for the heads up.)

    Looks like the Chinks are not CooCoo for the N.O. Co Co Puffs!
    I wonder …. while there did the crime rate rise?

    They can keep them.

    “a member of the mayor’s entourage ”

    Why does a mayor of a smallish city need an entourage?

    • JohnMG says:

      In the case of THIS mayor of THAT city you can readily see the need for adult supervision.

    Ha Ha Ha. Couldn’t happen to a nicer couple.

  5. Right of the People says:

    How apropos, a swine like Nagin being detained because of the swine flu, they probably think he’s a carrier! On another note, is it a rule that every liberal pol’s spouse be fugly?

  6. curvyred says:

    Would it be inconsiderate if I suggest they could just keep him………………….
