Federal Tax Money Used For GOP "Team-Building"?

Why is it when asked about ethical lapses under oath, the stock bureaucrat's response is, "I don't recall"? In this video of Rep. Bruce Braley questioning General Services Administration Head Lurita Doan, we find out that Ms. Doan attended what she characterized as a "team-building" meeting in which a White House staffer presented a 2008 Senate campaign strategy for targeting Democrats and defending Republicans. According to one of Doan's own staffers, after the meeting she asked how the GSA could help "our candidates." If true that would be a violation of the Hatch Act.

The video is 10 minutes long, but her fumbling and evasiveness make it worth the time you take to watch it. It is a primer for administrators who choose to deny responsibility for meetings that occur in their own buildings, using their own resources, under their own watch. For the rest of us, it is an eye-opener.
