• Whistleblower Says VA Management Harassed Him After He Raised Concerns To The White House

    VA whistleblower Scott Davis says he was harassed after he contacted a White House official over concerns he had regarding the massive mismanagement he witnessed at the  Veterans Affairs office in DeKalb County, Georgia.

    Davis, who works as a Program Specialist at the VA’s Health Eligibility Center, told a House oversight committee last night that he received harassment from the “top levels of management” at the VA.

    Davis says that shortly after he lodged his complaints to White House deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors, his manager found out. Davis continued to testify that his employment records were “illegally altered,” and he was “placed on a permanent work detail.” Finally, Davis said, he was then “placed on involuntary administrative leave” at the exact same time that the inspector general’s investigation of the VA was taking place.

    “Unfortunately, my experience is not unique at the VA,” Davis told the committee. There are others at the VA who “have experienced the same retaliation for reporting medical errors and patient neglect as well as misconduct by senior VA police officials,” Davis testified.

    Last week, Davis told Neil Cavuto that VA employees received pressure and “rushed through the application process to hit goals for members of management.” They were also told to focus their “attention to applications based on specific campaigns,” including ObamaCare.
