Fmr. GSA Admin. Lurita Doan Says ‘GSA Conferences Were Not Designed to Use Taxpayer Money for Personal Use’
There’s new fallout from the lavish government conference covered by tax payer funds in Las Vegas. A Senate panel is now urging the General Services Administration to clean house.
Former GSA administrator Lurita Doan, who served under George W. Bush, weighed in on the taxpayer funds that were misused in this case on America’s Newsroom. She told Gregg Jarrett that she is stunned by these findings, because she knows there are a lot of terrific employees that work at GSA every day.
Although it is clear to Doan that Neely and others were using government money as their own personal piggy bank, she pointed out that it’s really sad that they used America’s stimulus money that was intended to create jobs.
“What the three hearings prove is that the management, the poor management, started at the very top of GSA with the political leadership appointed by President Obama.”
Since these findings came out about the GSA, the Obama administration is now claiming that this mismanagement began on Doan’s watch. The former GSA admin. said that it's absolutely not true, adding, “I would never have approved these kinds of accesses, especially since they are using taxpayer money for personal use. This never happened under the Bush administration.”
