WASHINGTON — It turns out that federal officials with the same agency that blew over $800,000 at a Las Vegas employee conference two years ago are also paying millions every month to rent property that almost nobody in the government uses, according to The Examiner.
The General Services Administration (GSA) reportedly pays $13 million in annual rent for 189 rental properties that were less than one percent "occupied" for nearly half of last year, the article stated.
According to the article, GSA also pays $600 million in annual rent for at least 2,000 rental properties that were less than 10 percent occupied during that same time.
The housekeeping agency has already been under fire for lavish spending on a staff conference held in Las Vegas in 2010, the article noted.
