Description

In a continuing investigation of misapplied FEMA funds following the 2004 hurricanes that hit Florida, the Sun-Sentinel found nearly 25 percent of government damage inspectors had criminal records for "embezzlement, drug dealing and robbery," among other crimes. These inspectors were the government's defense against accusations of fraud when Miami-Dade received $31 million in relief even though hurricane-force winds did not strike the county.
