Thanks, Guys (Palazzo the hypocrite)

We’ve been telling you the story of Rep. Steve Palazzo (R) who represents coastal Mississippi, one of the regions hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. He voted against disaster relief for Hurricane Sandy and explained his vote here.

Tom Kludt just found this press release less than 6 months ago, in which Palazzo welcomed federal disaster relief for Hurricane Isaac.

Biloxi, MS - Congressman Steven Palazzo, Mississippi’s Fourth Congressional District Representative, today welcomed news that a major disaster declaration has been issued for the state of Mississippi to help communities recover from Hurricane Isaac. “Some of the counties in the fourth congressional district have been the hardest hit by Isaac,” Palazzo stated. “This determination comes as good news to our local communities who are dealing with the effects of the storm. We cannot thank the governor’s office and FEMA enough for their continued support.”

Palazzo has been on the ground working with other federal, state, and local officials since before Hurricane Isaac first reached Mississippi’s shores on Tuesday, August 28th.
