GSA Abuse Widens
[AP] Earlier this month it was revealed that the GSA had enjoyed taxpayer-financed junkets to Hawaii, South Pacific islands, California's Napa Valley and Palm Springs; stayed in resort hotel suites, and threw lavish parties. His April 2 report detailed how four Western regions partied at their Las Vegas conference in 2010, which featured a clown, a mind-reader, a team-building exercise to build bicycles and a rap video making fun of the spending.
Internal whistleblowers had been afraid to come forward fearing severe repercussions.
