Government Employees Make Another Problem Video

As a previous post noted, employees of the US General Services Administration have exposed the agency to political criticism.  At The Hill, Justin Sink writes that another problem has come to light:
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released a second video from the General Services Administration's (GSA) controversial and ritzy 2010 Las Vegas conference on Monday in which employees of the federal agency joke that their environmentally friendly initiatives were intended to earn President Obama good press.
The clip is the latest in a string of embarrassing moments for the agency, under fire for the event that cost more than $800,000 and led to the resignation of a number of top GSA officials.
Lawmakers have scheduled four hearings on the issues.
