In Vegas, eyes roll after fed spending scandal

LAS VEGAS — Hefty expenses by a group of federal employees in Las Vegas is prompting an outcry.

They were detailed this week in an internal General Services Administration report.

The group chewed through $823,000 — in part on commemorative coins, pricey breakfasts, and matching vests.

The internal report resulted in the termination of two top deputies and the resignation of the agency's top official hours before its release Monday.

The federal agency oversees office space and supplies, transportation and management tasks.

The report described multiple trips to Las Vegas by GSA employees that culminated in a weeklong, party-fueled conference.
