Fired corrupt VA official is back
« on: May 30, 2017, 06:59:30 AM »
...because civil servants don't answer to Tonald Drump. Or something like that.

A notoriously corrupt Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) manager fired in the first day of President Donald Trump’s presidency — to rousing acclaim from veterans who heralded it as a sign of lasting reform — has been returned to work by VA officials after he filed a civil-service protections appeal.

The return of the Puerto Rico hospital director is the latest example of Trump’s reform efforts encountering the entrenchment of what he has called Washington’s swamp, and comes in the same month a court ruled that the VA may not even be able to fire the Phoenix hospital director, who is a convicted felon as a result of job-related misconduct.

“On the morning of January 20, 2017, the Department removed DeWayne Hamlin, the director of the VA Caribbean Healthcare System, from the federal civil service. Mr. Hamlin subsequently appealed his removal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), and because of particulars in his case that remains under active litigation, he was brought back to work at VA,” spokesman James Hutton told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“As we have underscored since January 20, President Trump and Secretary [David] Shulkin have made employee accountability at VA a top priority, and we will continue to take appropriate disciplinary actions with our employees. The Secretary in this case was not able to overturn this decision once he was made aware of it. We need this ability in new legislation.”

So if you're fired, you sue and continue to draw pay that you will not be required to pay back if you do lose and are separated, is that about it? This POS is lucky he wasn't tossed off a tall roof.

We need to replace the entire pack of these people within VA. Everyone down to the floor cleaners. Not one trace of the old mentality. And then, maybe, just maybe the patients will get the care they fully deserve.

Thats the biggest problem with any govt employee. They dont give a damn about anyone and they have 0 incentive to be productive because its almost impossible to fire them. Could you imagine the great service you would get at a retail store if the employees knew they could treat you like vomit and not have to worry about  it? The reason the govt is so bad and wasteful is because the people there have  no incentive to do anything with their time.
