GSA once again in the spotlight for wasteful spending

The GSA – the federal government's General Services Administration – is under fire again for wasteful spending.

After investigating the lavish conference in Las Vegas that caused a public outcry, Congress is now looking into the GSA's so-called virtual employees, the people who work from home as a cost-saving measure for the agency.
