General Services Administration and Bob Garner

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politi...c=nl_headlines

The General Services Administration spent $3,200 in tax money to hire Bob Garner as a "mentalist" to peek down his nose under a blindfold.

I'm a little puzzled at the focus of the story being on Bob Garner's show, rather than spending any time on finding out who was responsible for hiring him.
It's as if, discovering that GSA had bought Ferraris for its employees, the reporter decided to cover the story by listing the features of the car, the services offered by the dealership and what the recipients thought of them.
