American Legion: Judicial Board Needs to Allow the VA to Get Rid of Bad Eggs

DAILY CALLER — The American Legion, the largest veterans’ service organization in the country, slammed a judicial appeal board for consecutively saving the careers of three questionable executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

For the last couple of months, the VA has desperately tried to fire three executives, only to be rebuffed time and again by the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), an independent agency ostensibly designed to protect federal employees from agency abuses.

“The burden of proof needed to discipline a VA employee, or any employee for that matter, should not be the same as what is required to send an accused murderer to death row,” said American Legion National Commander Dale Barnett in a statement Tuesday.
