The government official on the frontlines of the scandal involving a wasteful government conference, U.S. General Services Administration regional commissioner Jeffrey Neely, will invoke his 5th amendment right against self-incrimination, his lawyer Preston Burton tells ABC News.
He wont comment on the $822,751 conference, many of the expenditures for which the GSA Inspector General called excessive and wasteful. He wont comment on the bizarre awards ceremony, or the commemorative coins, the mind-reader/motivational speaker.
Mr. Neely bares a bit more in a photo collection on his wifes Google+ page. There visitors can see photos of Neely staying in a luxurious suite at the M Resort Spa & Casino in November 2009, during one of the eight scouting and off-site pre-conference meetings to prepare for the October 2010 conference.
The eight pre-conference trips alone cost the government $130,000, according to the GSA Inspector Generals investigation of the 2010 conference. Inspector General Brian Miller has referred his case to the Justice Department for possible criminal investigation.

I don't know what I'm more shocked by... Democrats livin large on someone else's money? Or the fact that ABC is actually COVERING IT?
Nevermind, Issa is on the case...Nothing will come of it.
“I don’t know what I’m more shocked by... Democrats livin large on someone else’s money? Or the fact that ABC is actually COVERING IT?”
They’ve managed to decouple it from Obama. Obama is taking very little damage from this. Eventually, the spin will be:
Obama cleans up the GSA, a mess left to him by Bush.
Trogolytes like you, who oppose necessary and proper government spending are secretly supporting thinly veiled Social Darwinism. There is a razor thin line between denying Mr. Neely wine bath spas and packing people you deem inferior into cattle cars bound for the camps.
Don’t you dare try to deny it!
What were those comments Obama made about CEOs and planes? Oh yeah, and those trips to Vegas? I told my Dad yesterday, what does everyone expect with these scandals? We have spent 50 years teaching that morality (cheating, lying etc..) do not matter.

I think they realize that if a social revolution does happen after Obama has used the “diversion” media - it is the actual news reporters that will be hanged as conspirators!
I think they don’t want Obama digging into their pockets...most of those big names make millions...FOX included...I guess they are rethinking their so-called support for the Big O!
Boiling in oil is too good for him.
After the GSA and Secret Service scandals, this is a great time for Obama to joke he goes to foreign summits to scout vacation spots.
Imagine how a statement like this would be treated by the media had a REPUBLICAN uttered it?
Not even thinly veiled...
Does this picture make me look gay?
I’ve been trying to figure out what would make me “happy” regarding punishment for these folks who are living large on taxpayer money. Repayment? Absolutely. Jail time? Absolutely. Still not enough, though. What I have finally settled on that would give me some measure of ‘satisfaction’ is a publicly televised caning.
LOL, well don’t know about that, but it makes me look like a pig, swilling at the trough of tax payers money. Dear God and Obama has blamed CEO’s for lavish bonuses. Clean up your own backyard before lecturing the business world Barack.
“Does this picture make me look gay?”
No, but there are two glasses of wine, one “happy fella” in the picture. Question. Why is he happy, and where is the other occupant?
Which I guess answers question 1.
Anyone wonder why the SS was setup in Brazil?
Issa is about the same as Judicial Watch. Toothless.
Whatever happened to using public money for personal use as theft?? I heard a federal prosecutor claim such fraud, waste, and abuse wasn’t illegal.
“What I have finally settled on that would give me some measure of satisfaction is a publicly televised caning.”
This kind of waste is destroying our country. It is TREASON, and I think it deserves a public hanging on the national mall and televised. It will never happen of course - but that is what SHOULD happen. What will happen is that we will all be hanging once the Chinese take over.
