CNN reports that FEMA gave away about $85 million in household goods meant for Hurricane Katrina victims. Ranging from cleaning to cooking supplies and utensils, these goods never reached one Louisiana victim of Hurricane Katrina.
Where are the goods now? Gone! Poof like Houdini! FEMA's acting press secretary said that the agency was spending nearly $1 million dollars a year to store all what the agency considered excess. So, in proven FEMA-style and because another federal agency wanted the warehouses (no typo...that's warehouses) torn down FEMA gave away all of the goods. But, none went to Louisiana. Why, because Louisiana declined the offer. When asked about this by CNN, McIntyre answered via email that the "give away was not news".
I think CNN should ask Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal about the give away since someone in his administration declined FEMA's gift. His answer would be quite interesting since he's on McCain's VP short list.
