Government Scandal Happens in Vegas, Doesn't Stay in Vegas

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

A congressional hearing yesterday looked into the General Services Administration spending scandal. The organization oversees government property and makes purchases on behalf of the government. In 2010, they held a 300-person conference in Las Vegas that cost taxpayers $823,000. Martha Johnson, the former head of the GSA, described the conference as "a raucous, extravagant, arrogant, self-congratulatory event that ultimately belittled federal workers."

Takeaway correspondent Todd Zwillich discusses the hearing.
