Senator acknowledges complaints about Tomah VA never went to oversight committee
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - March 10 2015 - U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson is acknowledging that a whistleblower's complaints about problems at Tomah's Veterans Affairs medical center never got to an oversight committee as promised.
Johnson, an Oshkosh Republican, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that a staffer in his Oshkosh staffer received emails from Ryan Honl in September. He told Honl he would send the complaints on to Johnson's staff attached to the Senate Subcommittee on Federal Contracting Oversight. Johnson's staff never forwarded the complaints on to Democrats who controlled the panel then.
Johnson said the staff didn't understand the gravity of the situation because they weren't aware of a VA report probing the allegations. read more>>>
