Comer sent a letter to General Services Administration (GSA) Administrator Robin Carnahan regarding whistleblower reports of her predominantly working remotely outside of the nation’s capital while serving in a high-level government position.

"For years, Americans have suffered from the federal government’s detrimental pandemic-era telework policies for federal bureaucrats," Comer said in the press release.
