What's Brownie Really Doing?

Does Brownie's consulting firm really exist?

Former FEMA director Michael D. Brown, who recently testified on Capitol Hill regarding his role in the federal government's reaction to Hurrican Katrina, has reportedly started a disaster preparedness consulting firm. According to an AP story back in November:
"Brown said companies already have expressed interested in his consulting business, Michael D. Brown LLC" which Brown plans to run "from the Boulder [Colorado] area, where he lived before joining the Bush administration in 2001."
But it seems that Brown hasn't registered this business anywhere in the country - according to our research which consisted of checking a national database of incorporated businesses and our phone calls to the Secretary of States in Colorado, DC, Virginia and Maryland.

So, what's going on here? Is Brownie lying? Or is he actually working with another consultancy to win Katrina-related contracts from the government because he's embarassed that his reputation might damage the prospects for any company with his name in the title?
