WASHINGTON, DC – Following the release of today’s interim VA Inspector General Report, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01), a member of the House Armed Services Committee and wife of a veteran, released the following statement:

“General Shinseki is a great man and a war hero, and I am grateful for his long service to our country and to our veterans. However, after seeing the report released today, I believe Secretary Shinseki should step down. We need new management at the VA to lean hard on wrongdoers and clean house wherever necessary. Most of our VA employees across the country care deeply about the men and women they serve and work hard, but there is an institutional dysfunction that requires a fresh look by new people.”
