GSA Spends $20K on Drumsticks for Seminar
A new hearing is scheduled to investigate another case of lavish spending by the GSA. The government agency is accused of forking over $270,000 for a performance rewards ceremony that included $20,000 worth of drumsticks for attendees. The drumsticks were used in some sort of teambuilding exercise.
Rep. Jeff Denham is on a mission to make sure that instances of such blatant government waste end. He told Bill Hemmer that “even after the president issued an executive order saying no more conferences, they still kept doing it.”

“On an annual basis, they are spending over a quarter of a million a year, and it’s got to stop,” Denham said of the GSA.
“The biggest part of the problem is this is the agency that sets the standard for every other agency in government, so if they are doing this you can see how bad the rest of government is,” Denham asserted.
