NEW YORK, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- More political appointees of the embattled Federal Emergency Management Agency are reported to be abandoning ship in Hurricane Katrina's wake.

Daniel Craig, FEMA recovery division director, told staff members he had resigned within hours of his former boss, Michael Brown, who quit Monday amid blistering criticism over the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

Craig, still on the job, said he expects to testify at congressional hearings into the FEMA response, the New York Daily News said Thursday.

A second top official, Edward Buikema, acting director of the response division, is returning to his old job as Region 5 director in Chicago, sources said.

And, Patrick Rhode, FEMA deputy director and former White House advance man, also is expected by many to resign because of a sour relationship with the new acting director, U.S. Fire Administrator David Paulison.
