Newsday and Time magazine are both doing investigations into FEMA (Fucking Everything More than it is Already) Director Michael Brown’s background, and discovering a bit of resume padding. To put it lightly.
They’re checking each bullet point on his FEMA bio and contacting the businesses, universities and associations he claimed to work for and asking them what he really did for them. The answers are quite a bit different than what’s on his bio.
Among the findings:
Under the “honors and awards” section of his profile at FindLaw.com — which is information on the legal website provided by lawyers or their offices—he lists “Outstanding Political Science Professor, Central State University”. However, Brown “wasn’t a professor here, he was only a student here,” says Charles Johnson, News Bureau Director in the University Relations office at the University of Central Oklahoma (formerly named Central State University). “He may have been an adjunct instructor,” says Johnson, but that title is very different from that of “professor.” Carl Reherman, a former political science professor at the University through the ’70s and ’80s, says that Brown “was not on the faculty.” As for the honor of “Outstanding Political Science Professor,” Johnson says, “I spoke with the department chair yesterday and he’s not aware of it.” Johnson could not confirm that Brown made the Dean’s list or was an “Outstanding Political Science Senior,” as is stated on his online profile.
Hell, look at his entire bio, and I’M more qualified to run FEMA than he is. And I don’t know the first thing about Emergency Management. That might have something to do with the fact that I actually have an I.Q.
