Listen (John Batchelor): criminal referrals in relocation bonus scheme

Share Button

The Department of Veterans Affairs Inspector General makes criminal referrals to the Justice Department in the case of two employees involved in a scheme to take jobs in which they had fewer responsibilities, keep the same level of pay, and collect relocation bonuses. The Los Angeles Times reports on the backlog of veteran benefits claim appeals, and cites repeated appeals by the vets themselves as one reason for the backlog. I talked about these issues and other VA details on The John Batchelor Show last night. My segment begins at about 31:20.
