Whistleblower: VA Employees Should Be Prosecuted

By    |   Monday, 10 Nov 2014 06:48 PM

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald announced sweeping changes in the operation of the troubled VA medical system, including the possible firings of 1,000 employees, but one of the agency's whistleblowers says it isn't enough.

"Why are we treating this like an HR issue?" Scott Davis said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto." "VA has admitted that its actions delayed people's access to care. Where's the criminal investigation?"

Davis, a program specialist at the VA's national Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta, testified before Congress that he was retaliated against after voicing concerns about operations in Atlanta.

A VA official apologized to Davis and other whistleblowers for the retaliation in July. Still, Davis told Cavuto, he is up for a performance review by Sherry Davis, the same supervisor who received a leaked report of his original complaint made to White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors.

"The person that's now being looked at by the Office of Special Counsel is going to do my review," Davis said.

Davis said the investigation of the VA should be a wake-up call to all government bureaucrats.

"We're dealing with a system in our country now where we have government oligarchs who think they're above the law, they're above the president, they're above Congress, and they're above the people," he said.

Some of the people on McDonald's firing list are presidential appointees, Davis noted, and could be fired immediately by President Barack Obama.

"He doesn't even have to have Bob McDonald go through this process," he said.
