Hiring ex-FEMA chief/current media attention panderer Michael Brown is something I would consider only if I were in very, very dire need of a judge for my Arabian horse show. (And even then only if I had no particular attachment to the horses.) So I haven't a clue why anyone would actually pay this man money to be a consultant for them... unless, perhaps, they want to understand how utterly, mind-bogglingly insane the freaking FEMA people are. Nonetheless, it apparently pays well to be a washed-up, pitiful, failed scapegoat of the executive branch:
The bottom line, he said in an interview Tuesday from Michigan, where he was working for one client, is that he expects to be earning far more than the $148,000 he was paid annually as FEMA director.Why am I making $10,000 a year while Michael Brown is basically getting people to randomly throw money at him? I should get out of the GTA business and into something much more lucrative: rank ineptitude.
"I will be making more," he said. "Significantly more."
