Man in charge of GSA scandal conference wanted it to be "over the top"
Posted by Staff
The Washington Post reports:

The man at the center of the scandal embroiling the General Services Administration — the one who insisted that the infamous Las Vegas planning conference had to be “over the top” — was trying to supplant what previous hosts of the biennial conference had achieved.

Jeffrey E. Neely initially approved a $300,000 budget for the October 2010 conference, but later authorized spending up to about $823,000. He also traveled to Las Vegas for five of the eight agency fact-finding or “dry run” meetings held in advance of the conference in order to see whether the proposed venue would be an appropriate fit. He stayed at the M Resort Spa Casino on four of the five trips, according to information provided to congressional aides by the GSA Office of Inspector General, which published the report this week.
