GSA Chief Martha N. Johnson Resigns Over Reports of Beyond Excessive & Wasteful Spending Clowns & Mind Readers for $823,000
I think we have come to learn who the real clowns are in Washington and who has been clowning around with our hard earned tax payer dollars since Obama has taken office. We are now witness to more excessive spending and waste of the tax payers dollars from the Barack Obama administration. GSA Chief Martha N. Johnson resigns and two of her top deputies were fired after being caught in a disturbing report of complete contempt for tax payer money as the GSA wasted823,000 training conference, held for 300 individuals. Oh, but wait, they had clowns, it must have been worth it.
Clowning Around with We the People’s Money
The chief of the General Services Administration resigned, two of her top deputies were fired and four managers were placed on leave Monday amid reports of lavish spending at a conference off the Las Vegas Strip that featured a clown, a mind reader and a $31,208 reception.
Administrator Martha N. Johnson, in her resignation letter, acknowledged a “significant misstep” at the agency that manages real estate for the federal government. “Taxpayer dollars were squandered,” she wrote. At the start of her tenure in February 2010 she called ethics “a big issue for me.”
The leadership collapse came hours before GSA Inspector General Brian D. Miller released a scathing report on the $823,000 training conference, held for 300 West Coast employees at the M Resort and Casino, an opulent hotel in Henderson, Nev., just south of Las Vegas.
