More GSA “American Idle”: Convention Laughs Over Admission that Video Made During Taxpayers’ Time

April 9, 2012

Admission from Awards Ceremony was Edited Out from Administration’s Friday Night 59 Minute Huffington Post Dump

The video clips below are from the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA) October 2010 Western Region Conference in Las Vegas, NV.  It was played on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at the “Capstone Dinner Event.”

In one part of an awarded video submitted by GSA Region 7 employees, a roomful of participants holding a picture of President Barack Obama sings:

“POTUS wants a press event, a project he can show … Are you ready for a miracle? GSA’s going Green.”

After showing the video at the convention, the following exchange (which was edited out of footage released Friday night by an “administration official” to the Huffington Post) occurs:

          GSA Convention Organizer Jeffrey Neely: 
“That was amazing, was there anybody in Region 7 who wasn’t in that thing?

          GSA Region 7 Representative:
          “If they didn’t work on Friday, then chances are they weren’t in the video.”
