“…Rep. Bustos told about 60 local veterans at a benefits workshop in Rock Island that Sandra Horsman, acting director of the Iowa City VA Hospital, has told her there was ‘no wrongdoing’ going on in the regional clinic…’The big news out of that meeting is that [Horsman] assured me that there are absolutely no duplicate records of any sort…There are no secret files of any sort’.”
Well yeah, if a bureaucrat says so, it must be true!
Would have it been too much trouble for Bustos to launch an independent investigation into the Iowa City facility rather than just rely on the word of some bureaucrat whose job is on the line? How many of the other directors swore everything was hunky-dorey, only to later discover they were lying their keesters off?
Bustos seems a little too eager and a little too credulous here swearing “absolutes” when she has no independent knowledge.
