Insisting that the General Services Administration’s bureaucrats-gone-wild party in Las Vegas may be the “tip of the iceberg,” Rep. John Mica tells Newsmax.TV that wasteful practices by the agency could top billions when all is said and done.

“It has to be the poster child for bad management,” declared Mica in an exclusive interview after emerging from Wednesday’s hearing on the embattled agency by the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, which is chaired by the Florida Republican.

“They had one individual, he made about $85,000 in his base pay; got $115,000 in overtime. This is incredible,” observed Mica. “Business would go bankrupt if they operated on that basis. But these folks have been on a steady regimen of using up taxpayer money, eating up public funds and not being responsible — and then stonewalling Congress, and then giving different answers.”
