Jeffrey E. Neely, the embattled General Services Administration regional commissioner who planned a lavish employee conference in Las Vegas that cost more than $800,000, left the agency Thursday, a GSA spokesman said.
Neely, the public buildings commissioner for the Pacific Rim region, had been on administrative leave since early April after an inspector general inquiry found rampant waste and abuse associated with the 2010 event. At the time of the conference, Neely was acting regional commissioner.

(Oh, never mind. The same reason Corzine isn't in jail. He must be a Democrat.)
Is this another difference between government workers and private industry ? That they can resign and not be pursued for misappropriation of funds ?
Compare this guy to Dennis Kozlowski who was CEO of Tyco and was convicted for spending company money on artwork for his office and a birthday bash for his wife.
Kowzloski is serving 25 years for misusing shareholders’ money but this GSA cretin gets to quietly disappear after misusing taxpayers money ??
I’m married to a teacher. He (and many others) have just gone on ‘staff development training’....courtesy of the tax payer. It was $1000. Plane fare and cost of room and food.
His friend made a trip of it visiting his buddies in a nearby city.......not going to the seminars where sign-in was NOT required.
Just one, big vacation.
Wonder what his cash out was worth.....probably retired on a huge Govmnt pension. Some punishment. Probably sell that picture on t-shirts and make a fortune..
Unless he lost his cushy pension, he is still on the taxpayers' tab.
Place of residence: Mill Valley, Marin County, California
One he# of a going away party...with OPM*
*Other People’s Money = ours!!!
In this case it is only the taxpayers money and therefore is considered just an error in judgment.
has the jerk with the rediculous beard who sings been canned yet? I sure hope so.
He needs to go to jail! He is a government crook!
............Jeffrey E. Neely, [snip] left the agency Thursday, a GSA spokesman said............
Notice it doesn’t say “fired”, or “resigned” or somesuch wording.
This scum sucker is still somewhere in the government lurking around to screw us one more time!
AMEN!! He should be in PRISON for mis-spending our money!!! Instead he’ll get a FAT PENSION for life and will NEVER see the inside of a courtroom!
