Rosemary Barbour is married to a nephew of the Mississippi governor, Haley Barbour. In the first days after Hurricane Katrina, Governor Barbour publicly praised George Bush to the skies for his fine Katrina relief effort – the effort that FEMA in reality never got off the ground.
It just so happens that Rosemary’s company, Alcatec LLC, has been awarded ten Katrina clean-up contracts totaling 6.4 million dollars. The New York Times reported that the most valuable contracts had no competitive bidding.
Hey, nothing but “family values!”
