Until recently, most Americans had not heard of the GSA (General Services Administration). Their job, in a nutshell, is to assist and provide for the basic functions of federal agencies. This includes opening the doors to an incoming Presidential administration and supplying access to the materials and funds they need to do their jobs.
The administrator of the GSA is Emily Murphy. For weeks, she has been avoiding the obvious result of the election. Yesterday, she finally informed President-elect Joe Biden that the current administration is ready to start the transition process.
What took the GSA and Emily Murphy so long? Are they so afraid of you know who (like so many in our government these days), that they put their careers ahead of the needs of the country? Or, have they finally seen the light and understood that to be on the right side of history, they can no longer hide from the truth?
Either way, there will be a shadow cast upon the GSA for years to come. I don’t envy those who will one day have Murphy’s job.
