She was asked to sign a document giving full control to the federal government. Which would have meant federalization of the disaster. This has never happened before, and essentialy would have been martial law. The federal government then could have blamed everything that went wrong on her or anyone. Also what the federal government did or didn't do with the military would have been kept secret.Pengwuino said:Well I had seen this...
and was confused as to what happened. I guess this article is false or something.
Why would the feds do this? They knew there was a good chance that the leeves would break and didn't want to be involved. They knew she would not sign that document.
Her rufusal to sign in no way relieved the federal government and the Department of Homeland Security, from their obligations in regards to her request for help.
