BREAKING NEWS……….UPDATE………..Shinseki Resigns After VA Scandal


This just broke a short while ago.

“President Obama said Friday he accepted the resignation of embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric K. Shinseki.

He made the announcement shortly after Shinseki apologized publicly Friday for what he called an “indefensible” lack of integrity among some senior leaders of the VA health-care system and announced several remedial steps, including a process to remove top officials at the troubled VA medical center in Phoenix.

Speaking after a meeting with Shinseki at the White House, Obama said Shinseki had offered him his resignation.

“With considerable regret, I accepted,” Obama said. “We don’t have time for distractions,” he added. “We need to fix the problem.”

IMHO, this comes as no surprise since pressure has been building for Mr. Shinseki to step down.
