No FEMA Money for You!
Missed this from a few days ago - Baltimore is going to beat Chicago to "Detroit II" status:
- The Federal Emergency Management Agency has denied a state request for disaster aid to cover the costs associated with the rioting and unrest that broke out in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray.
W. Craig Fugate, FEMA’s administrator, wrote in a June 12 letter to Gov. Larry Hogan that federal disaster aid was “not appropriate” for such an event.
“Therefore, I must inform you that your request for a major disaster declaration is denied,” Fugate wrote.
Spokeswoman Erin Montgomery said Friday that the Hogan administration “is reviewing FEMA’s response and will make a determination about the appropriate next steps, including a possible appeal.”
An actual intelligent decision from Washington DC - color us surprised. Enjoy the bed you shit in Baltimore.
