    GSA Head Resigns Over 'Wasteful' Seminar

    Agency Spent $800,000 On Las Vegas Event

    A GSA Inspector General's report on the 2010 GSA "Western Regions" training conference in Las Vegas shows the government spent more than $822,000 for the 300 attendees, including $75,000 on team building exercises, $6,000 on commemorative coins and $6,000 on canteens, keychains and T-shirts.

    The report shows that GSA employees "scouted" the location several times before the conference and that travel for conference planning totaled more than $100,000, with catering costs of more than $30,000. Add to that costs for the actual conference of more than $686,000 and the total comes to $822,751.

    Of course this will not receive attention from the left wing media. It is also so funny how some liberals brand anyone who wants to cut spending on anything other than the military racists, anti-poor, anti-old, yet our money is being spent on this and Solyndra, and other crap that helps virtually no one.

    NPR led with this story in their 8 AM news. Despite what you may have heard, they are NOT the pop media...

    This was buried in the daily national news briefs on page 2 of the local liberal rag. Looks like we aren't done discovering the depths of corruption and fraud in Obama's "Costs cutting agency"...

    GSA spending examined
    The General Services Administration inspector general was told the agency spent as much as $330,000 to move an employee from Denver to Hawaii, an example of millions of dollars wasted in relocation costs. The latest example of GSA waste to become public came from a transcript of an interview between an inspector general’s investigator and an employee who handled relocations. The Associated Press on Wednesday obtained a transcript of the interview, which took place in March 2011. The GSA has been under scrutiny since Inspector general Brian Miller reported earlier this month the agency spent about $823,000 for an October, 2010 conference at a Las Vegas resort. The former administrator resigned, two of her top aides were fired and eight employees have been placed on administrative leave.

    Obama Blames Bush For GSA Scandal

    The Inspector General Office’s report last week about the 2010 General Services Administration conference outside of Las Vegas indicates the Obama administration knew about the trip since May 2010. The report was followed by a release of videos.

    The administration also argued Friday night that the cost of the Western Regional Conference increased sharply under the Bush White House -- from $93,000 in 2004 to $323,855 in 2006 to $655,025 in 2008, then $840,616 in 2010, or just 28 percent under Obama.

    However, on Saturday morning Emily Baker, a former GSA regional administrator for President Bush, suggested to Fox News that the Obama administration is spinning the numbers.

    "When they're talking about that it sounds good to say it went up over 100 percent," she said. "It went up to about $250,000 dollars. I mean it's a lot but when you start small it's easy to say it increased a lot."
