Altruist Albaugh: Just lending his shoulder

Posted by schroeder915 on November 29, 2005

When George W. Bush’s campaign manager and former FEMA director, Joe Albaugh, helps businesses land government contracts, he says he’s “just trying to lend my shoulder to the wheel.”

Albaugh said that when he helped businesses develop opportunities in Iraq as the founder of New Bridge Strategies, he carried “pictures of close friends who died in the September 11th terrorist attacks as a constant reminder of what we lost that day.”

I wonder if he carried around pictures of Hurricane Katrina victims when he helped Halliburton’s Kellog, Brown and Root, and the Shaw Group get no-bid contracts for cleanup in Louisiana?
