Taking Care of the Right People First

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!”
