“We are disappointed and dismayed by the latest information detailed in the Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General report, regarding claims of employees misusing authority and incentives for personal gain. I have met with VA’s senior leaders today, who are taking the steps necessary to determine the full culpability of all individuals involved. Following a thorough investigation into these allegations, I have been assured all those found guilty of wrongdoing will be held accountable for their actions. We will await the findings of these investigations and any subsequent disciplinary measures taken to ensure VA employees are held to their sacred obligation of putting veterans, not themselves, first.”
