Hey, it’s New Orleans! You expected something else?
“New Orleans is taking federal taxpayers for a $2 billion ride in Hurricane Katrina spending, the inspector general who oversees the Federal Emergency Management Agency said Thursday, concluding that the city is charging the government for repairs that had nothing to do with the 2005 hurricane and flooding that devastated the Gulf Coast.”
“The city claims records were destroyed during Katrina …”
Sounds like approving FEMA officials went all Louisiana, a’ la H.P. Long School of Politics.
