As expected, U.S. General Services Administration regional commissioner Jeffrey Neely invoked his fifth amendment rights and refused to answer any questions in the Oversight and Reform committee’s inquiry, this afternoon.
Congressmen and the GSA’s Inspector General, Brian Miller went on to oppose any attempt to grant him immunity. Miller later addressed the allegations of Neely’s bullying of employees who threatened to reveal details of the spending. He had apparently told one employee she would be “squashed like a bug” if she squealed.After pleading the fifth. Neely made a beeline for the elevator, with reporters in close pursuit. Unfortunately for Mr. Neely, they caught up with him at the elevator, and he was forced to endure an elevator ride full of inquisitive reporters.
“Do you have anything to say, Mr. Neely?”
“I was wondering about assertions that you wife’s been traveling with you – is that true?”
“Are you going to be at the next hearings for the next two days?”
