GSA execs testify on Las Vegas spending scandal

Washington (CNN) - A government official at the center of lavish spending at a Las Vegas conference claimed his Fifth Amendment rights against testifying before congressional hearing Monday, while his boss said she mourned her departure from public service over the controversy.

Jeff Neely, the General Services Administration official who organized the 2010 conference that cost $800,000, repeatedly refused to answer questions, saying more than five times: "I respectfully decline to answer any questions here today based on my Fifth Amendment constitutional privileges."

    Hmmmm - wasn't there something that was brushed under the carpet about 4 or 5 years ago that had to do with cocaine, drugs, alcohol, sex in the office out in Colorado? Gee, guess that was Obama's fault.

    Grow up people, GSA hires republicans and democrats as civil service employees. Do you REALLY think a democrat would have made those home movies at this day and time? NO. But a republican might. Remember, it's no longe about the USA, it's about getting "that one" out of office.
