This morning Public Notice sent a clown and a mindreader down to Capitol Hill to audition for jobs outside of the Congressional hearing on the wasteful spending of the GSA. The non-profit group’s executive director Gretchen K. Hamel released the following statement in support of American clowns, and taxpayers.
“It’s a tough economy, so it makes sense for an experienced clown and mindreader to submit resumes to a federal agency that’s shown a willingness to hire for those positions. In all seriousness though, the outrageous bills racked up by the individuals at GSA are symptomatic of the sprawling federal bureaucracy and its lack of accountability to taxpayers. Bankrupting America hopes this tongue-in-cheek show will highlight the wasteful spending occurring throughout the federal government.”
