There is a major scandal unfolding in Washington, D.C., and for the most part it’s buried on the back pages of metro daily newspapers, and those that are national in circulation. It hasn’t been big news on televsion either. The Wall Street Journal has covered it — maybe the best. It had some coverage on television.

The scandal is at an agency that usually is not in the forefront of the federal bureaucracy. It is the General Services Administration (GSA), which is the government’s mangement agency for its property and rental space. An Inspector General report has detailed the abuse of taxpayer money by the agency. Sen. Claire McCaskill, who honed her investigative and auditing skills as Missouri auditor, began investigating the agency in 2010. Now she is sounding the alarm about bonuses given to officials while they were under investigation.
