A woman hired by FEMA to deliver more than 30 million meals to starving victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico delivered only 50,000 of those meals — even though she cashed her $156 million paycheck.
According to The New York Times, Tiffany Brown was tasked with the massive aid program, even though she had "at least five canceled government contracts in her past," and inked a lucrative deal with FEMA to be the point person in the United State's food aid program for the island nation.
But after contacting a wedding caterer in Atlanta and a small non-profit in Texas for help in fulfilling her obligations, Brown and her company, Tribute Contracting LLC, was able to provide only 50,000 meals — and of those meals, only a small portion fulfilled FEMA's requirement that the food be self-heating. Brown and her company had packaged hot packs and food separately.
When FEMA found out and canceled her contract, Brown didn't just forgive and forget. She's now suing FEMA for her money. She's seeking a settlement of "only" $70 million.
