Brown out at FEMA:
Michael Brown resigned as the director of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency three days after he was removed from the management of the relief effort following Hurricane Katrina.

Brown's resignation was confirmed by an official at the Department of Homeland Security, which has jurisdiction over FEMA.
Who's surprised that he fell on his sword? Will his replacement be … you know … competent? Will FEMA continue to receive scrutiny? Because the failure wasn't exclusively Brown's fault (though I hope he gets charged with a few counts of negligent homicide).
