The craziness of the 2020 election has catapulted a once little-known agency in to the national spotlight, the General Services Administration. The GSA is suddenly on everyone’s mind because the Trump-appointed head of the agency, Emily Murphy, is holding up the presidential transition process.
Although it has been 11 days since Joe Biden surpassed 270 electoral votes, Murphy is still refusing to certify him as the winner of the presidential race. Her stalling is actually hindering the transition process because, without her signature, the money that his team needs to launch is unavailable. In addition, the Trump admin has decided they won’t give Biden any intelligence briefings until the GSA makes it official.
Murphy’s failure to do her job earned her the MeidasTouch treatment.
