    Probe slams VA over $6M conference tab including parody video, official resigns

    Probe slams VA over $6M conference tab including parody video, official resigns | Fox News

    An Obama administration appointee has resigned in connection with another bombshell report detailing the waste of taxpayer money at feel-good conferences -- this time, at a pair of Veterans Affairs summits in Orlando that cost more than $6 million.
    John Sepulveda, who as assistant secretary for human resources and administration was the agency's top HR official, resigned just as the VA Office of Inspector General released its 150-page report on the conferences, held on his watch in July and August 2011.
    The report said he "abdicated his responsibilities" in overseeing the conferences, leading to "numerous examples of excessive costs, and unnecessary and unsupported expenditures."
    The resignation follows that of General Services Administration chief Martha Johnson, who stepped down following a report on a 2010 Vegas conference for GSA that cost taxpayers more than $800,000.
    I hope voters take note of this. Hope and change (and Pelosi) were promising a less corrupt govt and more transparency. Instead we get more corrupt govt and less transparency.

    Bigger government will be a more corrupt government, almost by definition.

    This ConferenceGate is a good example of how Obama hasn't kept his promise.
