After 140 Years of Not Being in Control, This is What NC Republicans Have Given Us
Resignation from FEMA
On September 12, 2005, in the wake of what was widely believed to be incompetent handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina by state, local and federal officials, Brown resigned, saying that it was "in the best interest of the agency and best interest of the president." His standing had also been damaged when the Boston Herald revealed his meager experience in disaster management before joining FEMA. .....
By the time he resigned from FEMA, Brown had already been discharged from his functions as coordinator of the federal efforts in New Orleans and Gulf Coast by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff and was sent back to Washington to continue FEMA's central operations. Bush, who had appointed Brown in 2003, praised Brown shortly after the storm hit, saying "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job," but later deflected questions about the resignation, except to deny having discussed the resignation with him.
At least one reliable source, The Economist, recognized the likelihood that Brown was "pushed" out by the administration rather than having resigned voluntarily, although internal e-mails from Brown indicated that he was already planning to leave FEMA at the time Katrina hit."
I guess this means that the Republicans---and the Fabulous Five Democrats who drove their budget over Perdue's veto----will now 'get scarce' (like Brownie did around the time that Katrina hit New Orleans) since they've done a maximum amount of damage:
