MS delegation: Send new VA network head somewhere else

Mississippi’s congressional delegation told Veterans Administration Secretary Robert McDonald that the new VA network head, Skye McDougall, belongs somewhere else.

“Mississippi veterans deserve more,” U.S. Sens. Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker and U.S. Reps. Bennie Thompson, Gregg Harper, Steven Palazzo and Trent Kelly wrote in a joint letter to McDonald.

McDougall, accused of giving false testimony to Congress, is slated to be the new head of the South Central VA Health Care Network that includes Mississippi.
