Crawford Calls for Gen. Shinseki to Resign
U.S. Representative Rick Crawford (AR-1) issued the following statement Wednesday calling on General Eric Shinseki to resign from his position at the Department of Veterans Affairs:
“It is with deep regret that I join my colleagues in both the House and Senate in calling for the resignation of General Eric Shinseki from his position as Secretary of Veterans Affairs. General Shinseki’s service to his country is to be applauded. He has contributed selflessly to our nation’s security for some four decades.
“However, in light of the latest inspector general’s report detailing the systemic and ongoing problems rampant in the VA Healthcare system, I do not believe General Shinseki can effectively implement the wholesale reforms necessary to make the VA the effective and efficient agency our veterans deserve.”
