Representative Wants Payments Stopped To GSA

Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, is urging the General Services Administration to stop paying Jeff Neely, the official at the center of the conference spending scandal. The Public Buildings Services commissioner in Region 9 for GSA was put on administrative leave earlier this month after an inspector general report revealed a 2010 conference in Las Vegas with a $820,000 price tag. In a letter to acting Administrator Dan Tangherlini, Mica called for Neely's immediate firing or, at the very least, removal from the federal payroll. Mica said: "Continuing to pay an official who has abused and demonstrated a wanton disregard for his responsibilities as a federal employee and senior executive is unacceptable."
