GSA official gets 2 years in prison for kickback scheme

A General Services Administration employee was sentenced Monday to more than two years in prison for accepting kickbacks from government contractors, colleague Del Quentin Wilber reports.

Eric Minor, 45, who had pleaded guilty to one count of bribery, was the last of 11 GSA employees or contractors to be sentenced for their roles in separate bribery schemes, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said that Minor collected about $118,000 in kickback payments on work he awarded companies between 2007 and 2010 when he was a GSA customer service manager.

The case is part of a five-year investigation by GSA’s Office of Inspector General into the abuse of GSA-issued charge cards. Read Wilber’s full report here.
