GSA Scandal Grows
WASHINGTON (AP) - The General Services administration has placed an eighth employee on administrative leave following a scandal involving an $823,000 conference in 2010 at a luxury resort in Las Vegas.
The nation's landlord for federal buildings, GSA took the action Monday as three congressional committees geared up for hearings beginning next week.
The latest official placed on leave was David Foley, deputy commissioner of the Public Buildings Service.
He appears in a video giving an award to an employee who - in the same video - did a rap song bragging about the lavish spending.
The GSA said putting the employee on leave was part of its continuing review of events surrounding the October 2010 conference.
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will conduct the first hearing on the scandal next Monday.
