Please let this be true – Brownie behind Enquirer story

Newly hired FEMA consultant Brownie is on C-SPAN testifying at the sham GOP “investigation” into how he f*cked up before, during and after Katrina.

What I seemed to have missed is this interesting scuttlebutt (from Jane at Firedoglake), courtesy of a Shakes Sis post today (my emphasis):

Brownie, as you’ll no doubt recall, did a heckuva job according to the man whose boozing he allegedly revealed to The Enquirer in a fit of pique as payback for the scapegoating he got, but this morning has told the committee he made “specific mistakes,” such as not persuading Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin to better coordinate their efforts.

Whoa. That’s hot gossip, and certainly he’s a prime candidate for leaking about The Boozing Chimp. That would explain the brain-dead PR decision to hire him as a FEMA consultant after the whiz-bang job that got him sh*tcanned. Maybe that Medal of Freedom really is in the mail too.
