Itâ€™s too bad that President Bush didnâ€™t recognize Michael Brownâ€™s incompetence before now. At least heâ€™s no longer in charge of recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast region, but itâ€™s clear that he never should have been in the first place. Thereâ€™s no question that Brown was never qualified to lead the Federal Emergency Management Agency, considering he was made director after being asked to resign from the International Arabian Horse Association.
But now even the little experience Brown supposedly had in emergency management is being called into question. This is from the Associated Press:
The 2001 release on the White House Web site says that Brown worked for the city of Edmond, Okla., from 1975 to 1978 “overseeing the emergency services division.”
But according to Time magazine, Claudia Deakins, head of public relations for the city of Edmond, says Brown was “an assistant to the city manager” from 1977 to 1980, not a manager himself, and had no authority over other employees.
