Senator Calls for FEMA Official’s Resignation After CBS Report

Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu called for the resignation of the chief of FEMA’s Louisiana Transitional Recovery Office today. Her comments follow last night’s CBS Evening News report from Armen Keteyian detailing the ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct, including nepotism, sexual harassment and discrimination. Landrieu:

It was very disturbing to see the CBS story about the dysfunction at the New Orleans FEMA recovery office. The people in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are shocked to hear that our recovery has been slowed by the toxic environment created by the office’s management. Beyond any doubt, it would be appropriate for Doug Whitmer to step down, and I am calling for his resignation.
