A federal grand jury has indicted a former official who headed the federal General Services Administration unit that came under fire for holding a lavish Las Vegas conference in 2010.

The San Francisco grand jury charged Jeffrey Neely, 59, on Thursday with filing false expense reports claiming he was traveling on official business, using a false document and lying to the GSA's inspector general.

  1. The red flag here was the. Fact that the conference was in Vegas. I live there. There is no such thing as a non-lavish event in Vegas.

If I’m paying taxes for lavish events in Vegas, I had better be invited.
