Top officials from the agency accused of blowing through taxpayer
dollars on luxury getaways and other expenses endured a public drubbing
Monday on Capitol Hill, as one invoked his right to remain silent,
others apologized profusely and lawmakers tore into them for the "gross
abuse of taxpayer funds."
Members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at
times yelled at the representatives from the General Services
Administration called to testify Monday, demanding strict punishment.
The acting chief of the agency later assured lawmakers that he's ordered
a few GSA officials to repay the government for their personal expenses
and will refer any "criminal activity" that is uncovered to law
