Landrieu Calls For FEMA Director's Resignation

Posted By on Thu, Feb 26, 2009 at 7:52 PM

Following yesterday’s CBS News story reporting there have been numerous complaints against Doug Whitmer, chief of staff of FEMA’s Louisiana Transitional Recovery Office in New Orleans, Sen. Mary Landrieu is calling for Whitmer’s resignation. According to CBS, there is an ongoing investigation surrounding 80 employment-related complaints that have been filed by the New Orleans FEMA office staff since January 1, and 30 of those charges, including sexual harassment, involve Whitmer.

 

In a press release, Landrieu expressed her frustration.

 

“We have seen examples of extraordinary waste, fraud and abuse in contractors hired by the government. In this case, it is actually the management of our FEMA office in New Orleans. The clean-up process should begin with the resignation of Doug Whitmer.”
