U.S. Representative Capito calls for Shinseki resignation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) is calling on Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign in light of allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals across the country:

“It has become exceedingly clear that the top leadership at the Department of Veterans Affairs is incapable of managing this troubled agency and ensuring that our veterans are receiving the services they desperately need. West Virginia’s veterans deserve to know that the Department of Veterans Affairs will be there for them, and increasing evidence shows that the VA is failing them. I call on Secretary Eric Shinseki to acknowledge the agency’s failings and step aside. In order for the VA to regain the trust of our veterans, it must show that accountability applies to everyone, starting with the secretary.”
