Fashionista and self-described "Diva" Tiffany Brown touts her company Tribute Contracting LLC's status as a "minority owned government consulting firm" with "three FEMA Contracts" worth millions along with her "women's clothing line" and beverage delivery app "Luxe Fuel" on her website.
According to a report in The New York Times, Brown was given a massive $156 million contract from FEMA in October to provide 30 million meals to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
She delivered only 50,000.
From The New York Times, "FEMA Contract Called for 30 Million Meals for Puerto Ricans. 50,000 Were Delivered":
The mission for the Federal Emergency Management Agency was clear: Hurricane Maria had torn through Puerto Rico, and hungry people needed food. Thirty million meals needed to be delivered as soon as possible.FEMA canceled her contract after she failed to deliver, so she filed a lawsuit against them demanding $70 million.
After Tribute’s failure to provide the meals became clear, FEMA formally terminated the contract for cause, citing Tribute’s late delivery of approved meals. Ms. Brown is disputing the termination. On Dec. 22, she filed an appeal, arguing that the real reason FEMA canceled her contract was because the meals were packed separately from the heating pouches, not because of their late delivery. Ms. Brown claims the agency did not specify that the meals and heaters had to be together.The Times found such behavior was par for the course:
The government has also canceled Tribute contracts on at least five occasions.Her website is currently offline but here she is touting her fashion line:

It looks like she's enjoying living the high life on taxpayers' dime.
