Eric Shinseki Veteran's Affairs Scandal

Shinseki resigns

30 May, 2014

Shinseki resigns his Cabinet post and accepts blame for troubles plaguing veterans hospitals, citing a systemic lack of integrity. President Obama accepts Shinseki’s resignation with “considerable regret”, saying:

We don’t have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem. Our vets deserve the best. They’ve earned it.

Before his resignation, Shinseki provides the president with a report outlining the problems surrounding the Department of Veterans Affairs.
