Well more about Brown, FEMA and elections fraud. It just never stops.
And another brick in the wall for Bush Cabal.

FEMA Chief Brown Paid Millions in False Claims to Help Bush Win Fla. Votes in '04" target='_blank' class='tabOff'/>

Michael Brown, the embattled head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, approved payments in excess of $31 million in taxpayer money to thousands of Florida residents who were unaffected by Hurricane Frances and three other hurricanes last year in an effort to help President Bush win a majority of votes in that state during his reelection campaign, according to published reports.

“Some Homeland Security sources said FEMA's efforts to distribute funds quickly after Frances and three other hurricanes that hit the key political battleground state of Florida in a six-week period last fall were undertaken with a keen awareness of the looming presidential elections,” according to a May 19 Washington Post story.

Homeland Security sources told the Post that after the hurricanes that Brown “and his allies [recommended] him to succeed Tom Ridge as Homeland Security secretary because of their claim that he helped deliver Florida to President Bush by efficiently responding to the Florida hurricanes.”

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel uncovered emails from Florida Gov. Jeb Bush that confirmed those allegations and directly implicated Brown as playing politics at the expense of hurricane victims.

“As the second hurricane in less than a month bore down on Florida last fall, a federal [FEMA] consultant predicted a "huge mess" that could reflect poorly on President Bush and suggested that his re-election staff be brought in to minimize any political liability, records show,” the Sentinel reported in a March 23 story.

The incestuous and corrupt relationship between this administration and the swing state of Florida (not to mention Ohio, the Supreme Court, the FCC, major government contractors, and everyone with two billions to rub together) is so well documented already it sadly doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore.

It's a given. The defense? Something like well Kennedy had mob ties 40 years ago. Whatever. Enough already.

I strongly encourage all to stop writing in John Kennedy for elected office in that case, and stop letting today's crooks get away with bloody murder.

No wonder Florida Hurricane response last summer was so up to day and so efficient.

They needed the votes to elect bush, now that he doesn't need to be elected anymore, the NO victims were not priority.

Every time I look into what the present administration has done to our nation is just to nauseating to even start to talk about it.

And still some supporters think that Jesus in the white house is just a blessing.

A blessing for the corporate corruption in this country.

well, this is an interesting thread and hardly surprises me at all. I guess now we know why such an unqualified and incompetent guy is running FEMA in the first place.
