Who would guess GSA was so controversial?

Ah, you've just gotta love Wikipedia. Talk about the first draft of history. Wikipedia's entry on the General Services Administration seems straightforward enough, but you've gotta check the previous versions of the entry, which you can find under the history tab on the GSA entry.

Apparently somebody submitted a whole entry on scandal at GSA, but it was removed.

Scandal/Controversy section deleted due to NPOV. Encyclopedic page on the GSA should not be used to highlight the perceived faults of one person's career


In addition, the links to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's hearing page, which includes all the testimony and video from the hearing, was removed.

"Removed external links as they serve to push an agenda."


There is also an entry for Lurita Doan. FCW does not have an entry other then as an abbreviation for Federal Computer Week...among other things.
