Breaking news right now on a whistle blower on lavish spending by the GSA appearing on Capitol Hill today telling lawmakers that she shares their anger.
Meantime the GSA building commissioner says that he didn't know the taxpayers would be build nearly 2000 dollars for a party in his luxury suite you talk congressman Kasich.
This is on the oversight and Government Reform Committee that's the committee that was having it's hearing yesterday there's another committee holding its hearing.
Today congressmen and there are four committees overall -- everybody wants in on the act when it comes to this that this scandal -- is that you.
-- everybody's -- did so absolutely this.
This egregious spending out of control wasteful spending.
Unfortunately FBI that it's just the tip of the iceberg that this isn't the only department and agency that's engaged in this kind of nefarious activity.
Well what else are you hearing though because I understand that there are other whistle blowers who are coming forward now.
What can you share what that's what have lawmakers heard about other examples of this.
Well we deal you know -- the oversight committee we have people come to us and even since this first broke we've had some other agencies highlighted we're reviewing those those documents mixture thereof an authentic.
But I worry that this is much more pervasive remember it's the GSA that's that's the per -- that's that's the travel standards they're the ones that were right that that's -- one of the biggest abusers of it.
They -- the White House though almost a year ago they did nothing about it they don't seem to fire people over there.
And so I just think that that's more permissive -- you know more pervasive than than should be.
By now we've all see the pictures of Jeff -- from the GSA enjoying.
Some time in his hot tub at that hotel suite.
I was some cocktails -- next to him.
He's sort of living it up in Vegas meantime he's still pulling the government paycheck was a law broken here congressman.
Well there's a couple things that are highly offensive to me and to hopefully.
-- has inspector has given that information to the Department of Justice that they can potentially pursue a criminal on -- What is is careful in my part is that.
Despite what the president said -- the presence that before the American people he said that there is a pay freeze in place.
But they were still giving out bonuses and this Bozo got a 9000 dollar bonus.
Despite knowing that administrator knew that this was a problem he game and I thousand dollar bonus and he's still on the payroll today he's still -- -- -- He's got a six figure salary.
We what does it take actually fire somebody over there they're too many good people who are patriotic thing they their frugal they're good government workers.
We gotta get rid of the riff -- like this Bozo and what he was doing.
How do you do that.
That's why the oversight every form committees and here we got to -- we got to put pressure.
Yup the Obama administration is a continuing -- it happen faster is nobody's been fired at the highest levels over there and Department of Justice back one guy got promoted to chief of staff.
He sees the firings over -- -- -- let -- -- do you see firings that that the TSA now the person was allowed to retire stepped down.
One -- -- actually fire somebody including this guy and then they'll note that let the American people know that are actually serious about he think you're gonna be able to get this -- to talk at all or this pleading the fifth does that.
Is that going to be sort of par for the course with a lot of these people that you wash well -- -- -- your committee.
I like we respect anybody's constitutional rights but he has wired up and probably for good reason because I think there's some criminal elements of this that's going to be investigated.
Don't off faster or not but they're gonna investigated and potentially.
He may be facing a criminal probe.
Congressman Jason -- Republican of -- good to see you sir thanks so much thank you thank you about.
