This would be comical if it was not tragic.
Staffers from the House veterans affairs' committee showed up at the Veterans Benefits Administration regional office in Philadelphia on July 2 in response to complaints from frontline employees.
The staffers met with Philadelphia managers in a fourth-floor conference room and then were told another room had been prepared for them on the third floor, complete with computers.
Committee Chairman Jeff Miller, R-Fla., told a hearing held last night the third floor room also was wired for sound and video to surreptitiously record the staffers – who quickly figured it out and moved to a room used by the inspector general staff free from observation.
This sounds like a cheap spy thriller and would be comical if it was not tragic.
