“I don’t trust their numbers. I’d be a little bit wary of them. Because I’ve often seen with the Obama White House is that they pick and choose which numbers they will represent. And some of those numbers look fairly large but they also could represent a federal, state and local gathering of officials. And most of the GSA conferences often have as many as 10,000 folks whereas the event that was in Las Vegas only had 300… You see within the Obama Administration you really see what seems to be a culture of excess… It is a crime. It is an absolute shame.”
– Former GSA head Lurita Doan, commenting on the Obama administration’s excuses for the current scandal involving waste in that agency along the lines that GSA expenditures are about the same as they’ve always been.
