FEMA director Michael D. Brown's been fired

The AP Wire reports that Michael Brown, whom Dubya needlessly praised several days ago, has now been more appropriately given the sack for his failures in dealing with hurricane Katrina:
Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role managing Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, The Associated Press has learned.

Brown is being sent back to Washington from Baton Rouge, where he was the primary official overseeing the federal government's response to the disaster, according to two federal officials who declined to be identified before the announcement.
Even so, that Dubya would have praised Brown for his "efforts" in past days was simply negligent at best.

As for Brown himself, Angry in the Great White North presents the following findings from NBC:
FEMA Director Michael Brown's credentials are facing new questions.

Time Magazine reported that his official bio and online legal profile have discrepancies.

Brown's bio on the FEMA Web site said he oversaw emergency services in Edmond, Okla. According to the bio, Brown was "serving as an assistant city manager with emergency services oversight." But a spokeswoman for the city tells Time that Brown's position was "more like an intern."

The magazine also reported Brown's profile on the Web site FindLaw.com lists him as an "outstanding Political Science Professor" at Central State University. The school said he was a student.

Carl Reherman, an ex-political science professor at the university through the '70s and '80s, told Time that Brown "was not on the faculty."

Another alleged discrepancy uncovered by Time was that under the heading of "Professional Associations and Memberships" on FindLaw.com, it stated that Brown was director of the Oklahoma Christian Home, a nursing home in Edmond, from 1983 to the present.

An official at the Oklahoma Christian Home told Time that Brown is "not a person that anyone here is familiar with."

About me

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
