Susan Brita, deputy administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, who emerged as a whistleblower star for her role in uncovering an $800,000 taxpayer-funded Las Vegas conference, was herself a participant in a similar taxpayer-funded event just a few weeks later.
More than a dozen General Services Administration employees and executives from Washington were listed as attendees for the lavish taxpayer-funded Las Vegas conference in 2010 that featured magic shows, a mind reader and a red-carpet event where federal workers acted like Hollywood movie stars.
The acting director, Dan Tangherlini, has pledged a host of reforms in the wake of the scandal.
"There were violations of travel rules, acquisition rules and good conduct," he said. "Just as importantly, those responsible violated rules of common sense, the spirit of public service and the trust that America's taxpayers have placed in all of us."
