Obama GSA Enjoys Las Vegas as Obama Criticizes Corporations for Same Thing

April 3, 2012

Remember Obama saying any corporations going to las Vegas for meetings were wasting money?

Guess his own GSA was exempted as there they went at the exact same time?

WASHINGTON – The head of the General Services Administration resigned from her post Monday, and two other officials were fired amid an investigation into excessive spending at a 2010 training conference that featured a clown, a comedian and mindreader, Federal News Radio reports.

Martha Johnson, the GSA administrator, submitted her resignation on Monday, citing a “significant mis-step” at the agency to the tune of more than $800,000. Robert Peck, the commissioner of the Public Buildings Service, and Stephen Leeds, Johnson’s senior counselor, also resigned.

This story was first reported by The Washington Post.

Johnson will be replaced by Dan Tangherlini, an assistant secretary for the Treasury Department and former D.C. city administrator, according to Jason Miller, executive editor at Federal News Radio. Tangherlini announced his decision to leave the D.C. government in May 2009.

Four other GSA employees who helped plan the conference are on administrative leave.

In her resignation letter to GSA obtained by Federal News Radio, Johnson says the agency has “made a significant mis-step.”
