Talk:Michael D. Brown
I'm about out of time but the Center for Public Integrity has uploaded a pdf of 928 pages of Michael Brown's emails http://www.publicintegrity.org/docs/katrina/MikeBrownEmails_Katrina.pdf
They have also released an analysis http://www.publicintegrity.org/katrina/report.aspx?aid=484
On the day Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans, it was business as usual in the world of money, power and government inside the Washington beltway. Newly released email messages to and from then-FEMA head Michael Brown show that, among other things, a former U.S. senator who had become a registered lobbyist was trying, just hours after Katrina hit, to get Brown to schedule a meeting to complain about a no-bid contract that was heading to his client's competitor. The note from former Sen. Tim Hutchinson (R-Ark.) to Brown is among the more than 900 pages of Brown's e-mails released last Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the Center for Public Integrity.
