Talk about clowning around with your taxpayer dollars. A new video from that lavish government junket in Las Vegas that cost taxpayers $800,000 is fueling a firestorm.
The video shows government employees singing, dancing, and drinking. Some are even dressed in drag.
In one spoof, a government worker, callling himself the angry clown, cracked wise about goofing off at work.
The boondoggle was thrown by the General Services Administration [GSA], the very agency charged with eliminating wasteful spending.
Nearly 300 government employees were in attendance at the M Resort Casino & Spa. Some participated in a talent contest, but the only talent one woman joked she had was drinking. On the video she said, "I have a talent for drinking margaritas."
Was she in luck as a co-worker handed her a giant margarita on the video.
