Brown's press secretary wrote colleagues to complain that the FEMA director needed more time to eat dinner at a Baton Rouge restaurant that evening. "He needs much more that (sic) 20 or 30 minutes," wrote Brown aide Sharon Worthy. "We now have traffic to encounter to go to and from a location of his choise (sic), followed by wait service from the restaurant staff, eating, etc. Thank you."
That communication from Brown's press secretary came 3 hours after this email to Brown from Marty Bahamonde, a FEMA regional director responsible for New Orleans:
"...[E]stimates are many will die within hours. ...Sir, I know that you know the situation is past critical," Bahamonde wrote.
Anyone still think Brownie was doing a heckuva job?
