    So much unbelievable horseshit/resume padding in his bio...

    Prior to joining FEMA, Mr. Brown practiced law in Colorado and Oklahoma, where he served as a bar examiner on ethics and professional responsibility for the Oklahoma Supreme Court and as a hearing examiner for the Colorado Supreme Court. He had been appointed as a special prosecutor in police disciplinary matters. While attending law school he was appointed by the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee of the Oklahoma Legislature as the Finance Committee Staff Director, where he oversaw state fiscal issues. His background in state and local government also includes serving as an assistant city manager with emergency services oversight and as a city councilman.

    Mr. Brown was also an adjunct professor of law for the Oklahoma City University.

      They weren't worried he might be padding his resume....

      ...because they all padded theirs, too!

      Is that done at ?

      The lists of donors?

      (That does not pick up bundling of donations, so one also eneds to phone up party headquarters, the 'appointee evaluation', ummh, 'major donor' center, and ask a few key questions.)
