Their defence: “it never was a problem before Trump to get a little ‘commission’. How were we to know things had changed???”
I just betcha they are Obama supporters.
They were Trump fema officials after hurricane Maria 2017
Cant blame obama for this

I know retirees that signed on with FEMA years ago and hammer down 30 plus an hour plus per diem when deployed(they do squat at that time)
No reason to take any bribes..Lock their sorry asses up
No need to look, you betcha.
doesnt matter who the Pres was when they worked their or when they were hired.
I blame their cultural background
An Obama affirmative action hire - easily manipulated, controlled and left out on a limb.
Ahsha & Jovanda
Just reread the piece, now I will confirm 100% with out looking they were Obama kin
A name+image search confirms.

Good pull her pension send her back to the hood
Obama made many previously political appointments at FEMA and other places, converted them to civil service jobs, permanent employees and infested the entire government. Val Jar.................
Obamas Influence Could Continue After His Term Through His Political Appointees:
The Trouble with Tribbles.
TRibble went to FEMA Aug 2015: OBAMA
