Washington (CNN) House Republicans released new information exposing excess spending by the General Services Administration beyond the now infamous 2010 Las Vegas convention.
The agency appears to have spent $330,000 to relocate an employee from Denver to Hawaii, and likely "millions" on others over a two year period.
That information comes from an interview with a GSA event planner conducted by an investigator with the GSA inspector general in March, 2011. The transcript of the interview was provided to CNN by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
It is unclear from the transcript whether the government was reimbursed for any of the expenses.
The interview was largely about spending at the convention, but the unnamed GSA event planner volunteered that another part of his or her job was to relocate other employees.
In the one particular relocation from Denver to Hawaii costing the GSA $330,000, the event planner said the employee "stayed on for just the one year and then quit. Left the GSA," despite signing an agreement to stay on after relocation, "Wow that is wasting taxpayer money," the investigator said.

And now there’s the little Palm Springs fete put on for the interns. It’s a good thing no one is responsible in the administration. This way taxpayers can continue to be raped by the most incompetent government known to the USA.
Oh they were only following by example from their boss,Obama.
When CNN latches on to a story like this it gets my ears up.
Internal Democrat squabbling....perhaps an indicator of the Clinton/DNC wing making their move to try and kick Barry to the curb.
A Republican president would have actually been held accountable for this.
What Congress really needs is an organization that can monitor and audit the expenditures of government agencies such as the GSA.
Yet nothign abotu the 10’s of millions of dollars the obamas have spent on lavish vacations and parties forthemselves huh? Romney should be hammering htis fact that the obamas have recklessly spent 10’s of millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish vacations while the economy was tanking and people were losing hteir homes- Romney should really portray michelle as marie antoinaette because that’;s exactly what michelle has been acting like- let them eat cake!
