When I heard there was a new GSA video coming out, I was looking forward to seeing more wacky taxpayer-funded shenanigans from Sin City, but it was not to be.

In the universe of things that warrant a detailed explanation to taxpayers, the $800,000-plus bureaucrats gone wild junket in Las Vegas isn’t anywhere near the top of the list, but they started there anyway:

Acting General Services Administration administrator Dan Tangherlini tried to rally his beleaguered agency Tuesday in a video message that acknowledged the agency’s significant missteps and asked employees to focus on the future.

“There were violations in travel rules, acquisition rules and good conduct,” said Tangherlini about reports of an $800,000 Vegas conference that cost the top three GSA administrators their jobs last week. “Just as importantly, those responsible violated rules of common sense, the spirit of public service, and the trust that America’s taxpayers have placed in all of us.”

“I speak for the overwhelming majority of GSA staff when I say we are shocked and deeply disappointed by these indefensible actions,” said Tangherlini. “We’ve take a number of steps to ensure that future misconduct doesn’t occur,” said Tangherlini, announcing that the agency’s “Hats Off” awards program has been shuttered due to more reports of abuse.

It’s a shame Tangherlini didn’t make the Angry Office Clown personally deliver this address. Too much to hope for I guess:
