Goodbye Michael Brown

Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Brown, under fire over his qualifications and what critics call a bungled response to Hurricane Katrina, resigned Monday, senior administration sources told CNN.

Brown was recalled Friday to Washington and replaced as the point main for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff named Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad Allen to head Katrina relief efforts.

A senior administration official said Friday that President Bush approved Chertoff's decision.

Brown's reassignment came amid questions raised in Time magazine about whether his resume was padded to overstate his experience in emergency management. A FEMA official quoted in the report said Brown believes the article is inaccurate.

So when can we expect Nagin's and Blanco's resignations?
As soon as the people of NO an LA ask for them. At the very least, they'll be held accountable at the polls.
I'm not sure when the electorate will get a chance to vote Mr. Brown out of office.

Why would they? It's not their fault the federal Government decided to abandon them.
