Manchester – Today, Scott Brown joined the American Legion, the nation's largest veterans service group, in calling on U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki to resign:
"Recent reports of delayed medical care that led to 40 patient deaths cannot be accepted with a business-as-usual attitude. While I respect his service to our country, there needs to be accountability in government. For that reason, Secretary Shinseki should step down immediately. President Obama needs to install new leadership at the Department of Veterans Affairs that will finally address persistent reports of gross mismanagement and restore confidence in an agency that has failed in its basic mission."
