Hagan Comments on VA Inspector General Report

Wednesday, May 28, 2014


Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Kay R. Hagan released the following statement on the VA Inspector General's report.

"I am outraged by the findings detailed in the Inspector General's interim report released today. When allegations of serious misconduct at the Phoenix VA hospital and others around the country originally came to light, I said we need a full investigation to determine the facts and hold people accountable. Now that some of the most serious allegations have been confirmed by the independent investigation, we can no longer put our faith in the current VA leadership's ability to fix these problems. Secretary Shinseki has served our country honorably over many decades, but in the interest of regaining the trust of our veterans, and implementing real and lasting reforms, I believe it is time for him to step aside and allow new leadership to take the helm at the VA to correct these failings immediately."
