He’s still trying to rebuild his “reputation,” this time in a Playboy interview. Ya that’ll work..
WASHINGTON (AP) — A Mississippi congressman hit back at Michael Brown on Thursday after the former FEMA director described him as “that little twerp.
“Brown is an incompetent fool, and everyone in South Mississippi knows it,” said Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss.
In a Playboy magazine interview, the fallen Federal Emergency Management Agency chief took issue with Taylor for harshly questioning him during a hearing into the government’s sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina last year.
“He said I didn’t recognize the death and suffering that was going on,” Brown said of Taylor.
“For that little twerp to claim I didn’t recognize death and suffering — he can just bite me, for all I care,” Brown told Playboy.
Taylor, one of the few Democrats to sit on the Republican-dominated House inquiry, returned fire Thursday.
“Brown should consider himself a lucky man,” he said in a statement. “Had I known before the hearing that he was up in Baton Rouge ordering steaks on his government credit card at the same time the people of South Mississippi were resorting to police-sanctioned looting to feed themselves, I would have done more than just verbally kick his butt.”
