President Obama Accepts Eric Shinseki’s Resignation Over VA Scandal

President Obama announced that he has accepted the resignation of Eric Shinseki’s resignation over the ongoing VA scandal. Sloan Gibson will become acting secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs in place of Shinseki.

Obama said he accepted Shinseki’s resignation with “considerable regret,” after the two men met in the Oval Office Friday morning.

Shinseki had faced mounting calls for his resignation from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers. His resignation comes two days after a blistering internal report found deep-seated problems in the veterans’ health care system, which provides care to about 6.5 million veterans annually.

Shinseki, who is a retired four-star Army general, has overseen the VA since the start of Obama’s presidency.

    Just the facts Ma’am.

    You just gave ANALYSIS about the Republican who said a mass shooting was an “unfortunate incident”.

    For some reason when it comes to the Obama Administration and reports of incompetence in governance – you list the facts – apparently so you can make the case that you did “Report On It”.

    Is it your opinion that anyone was injured during the tenure of Gen Shensiki?
