Embattled FEMA director Mike Brown has resigned.
“I’m turning in my resignation today,” Brown said. “I think it’s in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president to do that and get the media focused on the good things that are going on, instead of me.”
During his tenure, Brown developed a reputation for focusing more on the appearance that FEMA was providing relief, than on actually providing it. This apparently remained his focus until the very end.
