As far as we can tell, FEMA hasn't botched the Hurricane Sandy relief yet. But don't worry, New York's equivalent of FEMA was right there to screw up instead.
Steven Kuhr was the director of the New York State Office of Emergency Management. I say "was" because Governor Andrew Cuomo fired him on Wednesday for misusing resources after the storm hit.
While emergency crews were working around the clock to help people whose homes were destroyed, flooded, or without power, Kuhr diverted an entire crew to his house so they could clear a tree out of his DRIVEWAY.
A New York state senator named Martin Golden put it in perspective, saying quote, "I've got people sitting in their homes with no electricity, no hot water, and freezing to death . . . [and] this guy's only worried about his own home?"
When Cuomo found out, he fired Kuhr immediately. Kuhr was making $153,000 a year.
