An investigative report by WWL-TV says that another local businessman is willing to testify that he gave Ray Nagin $50,000 in order to get millions of dollars in work from the city.
According to the report by WWL-TV's David Hammer, Rodney W. Williams, former president of Three Fold Consultants LLC, is willing to testify that he paid the then-mayor the cash in return for no-bid contracts and part ownership in the Nagin family's granite company.
Federal prosecutors already are reportedly investigating possible corruption involving other city contractors during Nagin's tenure as mayor.

Greg Meffert, who modernized the city's website and other information technology, pleaded guilty to accepting bribes and kickbacks from Mark St. Pierre, a city contractor. Nagin went on lavish tropical vacations with Meffert which the former mayor says he thought was paid for by his employee, but Meffert says that money actually came from St. Pierre.
In June, another former city supplier, Frank Fradella, pleaded guilty to bribing an unnamed New Orleans official $50,000 and giving that official free granite for the official's family's business. Legal experts say that "unnamed official" is almost certainly Ray Nagin.
