Congress has a lot of questions for the leaders of the Federal agency at the center of a wasteful spending scandal, but it looks like they won't be getting many answers from the former Director who organized the now-famous Vegas junket.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Capitol Hill:

Jeff Neely, the now-suspended Regional Commissioner of the General Services Administration, invoking the Fifth Amendment five times.  Martha Johnson, who resigned as Administrator of the GSA in the wake of this spending scandal, says by the time she took office, what was supposed to be a training event in Las Vegas...

(Johnson) "Had evolved into a raucous, extravagant, arrogant, self-congratulatory event that ultimately belittled Federal workers."

That 2010 conference, costing more than $800,000.  An Inspector General's report, detailing lavish gifts and hotel expenses - even a hired clown and mind reader.
