Rep. Nancy Pelosi says that “the evidence remains to be seen” as to whether the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal is actually a “scandal.”
Lawmakers and veteran groups are currently calling for VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s resignation following revelations that the VA medical center in Phoenix, Arizona kept a secret waiting list that led to some of the numerous preventable veteran deaths overseen by Shinseki’s VA in recent years.
“Well, I think any time that our men and women in uniform are not served in the manner in which they deserve, you could perhaps call it a scandal because it’s scandalous that they’re not,” Pelosi said in an interview that aired Monday with Vox.com editor Ezra Klein.
“Whether it is a scandal with intention and all of that, the evidence remains to be seen,” Pelosi said.(via thedc)
