A former associate administrator at the U.S. General Services Administration had sex with a White House staffer in his government office and on the roof of the agency’s northwest D.C. headquarters, an internal investigation reveals.

The investigation also revealed the official drank from a bottle of vodka in his office “after normal business hours.”

The report details multiple violations of federal policies prohibiting or limiting alcohol consumption in federal offices, by high ranking officials of the GSA in 2017. The GSA is the independent federal agency which oversees federal office spaces and public buildings.

The misconduct is detailed in a written summary of an investigation conducted by the Inspector General of the General Services Administration, released to the News4 I-Team under the Freedom of Information Act.

According to the inspector general report, former associate GSA administrator Brennan Hart escorted a White House staffer into the agency’s F Street headquarters on July 1, 2017. The report said Hart acknowledged he then poured drinks from the bottle of vodka he kept in his desk. According to the report, “He said their sexual activity began in the Administrator suite area and culminated with oral sex on the rooftop of the Central Office.” The report said the official “stated this occurred on only one occasion.”


Hart’s employment with the agency ended in March 2018, several weeks after the inspector general interviewed him about the incident. The report redacted the name of the White House staffer involved. A copy of the inspector general report was sent to then-White House counsel Don McGahn in March 2018.
