Demand your senator stand up for veterans!

While veterans were suffering and dying under inadequate care at Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals, what were Obama’s bureaucrats doing? Stealing. And your senator refused to do a thing about it.

From 2010 to 2013, Venita Godfrey-Scott directed employees to use materials and supplies intended for VA medical center to make improvements to her house. Using up to $20,000 worth of materials, she had VA workers build “a deck in her backyard, carpet installation, and various kitchen, bathroom and basement improvements,” according to the U.S. Justice Department. Godfrey-Scott was convicted and sentenced to four years probation, and forced to pay $15,000 restitution.

Elsewhere, Rebecca Wiley, former director of the Charlie Norwood Veterans Affairs Medical Center, was quietly paid $76,006 when she retired last year just one week after Congress began investigating her hospital’s role in nine preventable patient deaths in Augusta and Columbia, according to documents retrieved by the Augusta Chronicle.

This just plain wrong. Our nation’s veterans gave everything to their country, and Obama’s VA let them down while its employees stole money for personal use. Sign the petition and demand your senator finally stand up for veterans!
