With no fanfare, FEMA A-hem… revises Michael Brown’s resume.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has quietly revised the official biography of its embattled director, Michael Brown, to correct an error about his background in local government following allegations he exaggerated his disaster relief experience.
Brown’s biography on FEMA’s Web site, http://www.fema.gov, was updated at just after 5 p.m. on Sunday to revise his title while working in local government in Edmond, Oklahoma, in the 1970s.
One correction was made to make clear that Brown had not served as “an assistant city manager,” as had been stated in his biography. The new biography states that Brown served as “an assistant to the city manager.”
FEMA also revised Brown’s role in emergency planning at the time.
The revised biography states that “his background in state and local government also includes serving as an assistant to the city manager with emergency services oversight responsibility.”
The old biography said “his background in state and local government also includes serving as an assistant city manager with emergency services oversight.”
And in other Brownie news, a rather large bird told me that he’s fixin’ to resign.
