George O'Leary was quickly "unhired" by Notre Dame when it emerged that he had not completed a degree that was listed on his vita. Now it emerges that our current foil, Michael Brown, has a similar problem.
His bio at the FEMA website currently states that his position as "assistant city manager" had "emergency services oversight." Not so, according to Time - his position there was as an intern.
Time alleges that Brown's self-reported information at Findlaw.com has similar embellishments and inaccuracies.
Findlaw's information states that Brown was given an Outstanding Professor of Political Science award. Says a University administrator: "not [even] on the faculty."
It also says that Brown has been a director of a nursing home since 1983. Says a veteran of the home: he "was never director here, was never on the board of directors, was never executive director. He was never here in any capacity."
Sense a pattern? It looks to me like Michael Brown lied his way to the top.
O'Leary didn't last a week as football coach at Notre Dame. How long can Brown last at FEMA?
