How Many More Mike Browns Are Out There?

Apparently Mr Brown did not go to Washington alone. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...9345-2,00.html

Whither Michael Brown?

It turns out that former FEMA director Michael Brown is being retained by the agency as a "consultant."

Brown was on the Hill today to speak with staff at a special House committee in preparation for his testimony at a Tuesday hearing on Katrina. In the session, Brown said that he was working as a consultant "to provide a review" of Katrina preparations and immediate aftermath, according to two congressional sources.

It is unclear what, if anything, he is being paid. "I would assume he is being paid, yes," an aide close to the committee said on background. But no one at the briefing asked that question of Brown.

This is cronyism at its worst.
