V.A. Secretary Eric Shinseki Resigns Amid GOP Calls For His Head On A Stick
At a hastily-announced press conference in the White House's Brady Briefing Room Friday morning, President Obama announced the resignation of Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, in the midst of a scandal surrounding fraudulent waiting lists at V.A. facilities that resulted in delayed care for veterans. The President also announced that current Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson will replace Shinseki until a permanent replacement is confirmed, and took several questions from the press.
