Lots of pings coming from GSA

Nothing nailed down yet, but...the ambient noise level stepped up significantly this afternoon. I'm hearing word of another WP story coming...and all sorts of other stuff. What are you hearing out there?

Meanwhile...FCW specifically has not asked the Doan question -- should she say or should she go. (Why? Read here.)

Federal Times, however, which has done at least two (maybe three) editorials calling on Doan to step down -- asked this question:

Do you think GSA head Lurita Doan should be fired for violating the Hatch Act?

Yes: 62% (1,421)
No: 35 % (810)
I don't know: 3% (79)


I'm not sure the question is totally fair, but... it is interesting.

We asked: Have Lurita Doan's problems become a distraction for GSA?

Yes: 54.7%
No: 40.4%
What problems? 4.9%

Also intersting. Ask a different question, and give very different numbers.

These things are not scientific, of course, so... gain of salt.

And yes -- we're looking at better software for our online polls. We're not thrilled with it either.
