What's Next For Michael Brown? For Now, He's Still at FEMA

You might remember that FEMA Director Michael Brown resigned on Sept. 12, three days after he was removed from his on-site role overseeing the Katrina disaster response by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff.

Not so fast, it seems.

Michael Brown is continuing to work at the Federal Emergency Management Agency at full pay, with his Sept. 12 resignation not taking effect until mid-October, Homeland Security Department spokesman Russ Knocke said yesterday.

CNN reported yesterday that Knocke said Brown would be paid for "transitional purposes."

Brown's 2004 salary was $145,600, according to the Plum Book, a congressional reference guide to executive branch salaries.
