In April 2012, Martha Johnson resigned in a very public way from her Senate-confirmed position as Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration. But her new book, On My Watch, isn't a Washington tell-all.
What accounts for the different treatment? Why is a million dollars of waste at the GSA a scandal but not tens of billions of dollars at the FCC-NTIA? I believe public ignorance and apathy are the immediate cause of blame.
Maybe it was the fact that the administrator was forced to resign and two employees were fired. Truth be told, a lot of administration heads should probably resign. These abuses are not unique to the Obama administration; they've gone on for decades.
