Needless to say, New Orleans doesn’t need another scandal, particularly involving a high profile politician.

NEW ORLEANS –In the clearest sign to date that a federal grand jury is zeroing in on Mayor Ray Nagin, the U.S. attorney’s office issued subpoenas recently asking for the mayor’s missing e-mail messages and for others involving key players in the city’s crime-camera contracts.

The Louisiana Technology Council, a firm hired by the Nagin administration to determine what happened to the e-mail messages, said Tuesday that its subcontractors, after receiving a pair of subpoenas, turned over to the federal government some of the data it retrieved.

The issuance of the subpoenas was first disclosed in a civil lawsuit filed Monday by the city, which fired LTC last month, claiming it breached a confidentiality agreement. In response to the lawsuit, LTC released the subpoenas.

Christopher Reade of Carrollton Technology Partners, an LTC subcontractor, received a subpoena July 22 commanding him to testify before the grand jury on July 24 and demanding that he turn over “any and all recovered e-mails involving C. Ray Nagin, Gregory Meffert, Anthony Jones, Mark St. Pierre and/or Harrison Boyd from May 2002 to the present.”
