Our veterans have earned all the care and compassion we can provide. They do not deserve to be victims of kickback and bribery schemes. I join all taxpayers in thanking federal authorities who uncovered this corruption for their diligent efforts, especially Inspector General Michael Missal.

Washington DC – U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) released the following statement in response to the announcement that South Florida residents face federal charges in connection with an alleged corruption scheme involving workers and vendors at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Centers in West Palm Beach and Miami, Florida. Wasserman Schultz chairs the House Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, which oversees the VA:

“Our veterans have earned all the care and compassion we can provide. They do not deserve to be victims of kickback and bribery schemes. I join all taxpayers in thanking federal authorities who uncovered this corruption for their diligent efforts, especially Inspector General Michael Missal. However, these suspects in no way reflect the thousands of devoted VA workers who care for, protect, and serve our veterans every day. I know I am joined by my congressional colleagues in our commitment to protecting the interests of our veterans.”
