Grimes Statement on Secretary Shinseki's Resignation

Statement

Location: Frankfort, KY

Today, Alison Lundergan Grimes released the following statement on the resignation of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki:

"Meeting the needs of veterans and active-duty servicemen and women -- and being their fierce advocate -- has been a top priority of my tenure in public service. We owe our men and women in uniform a debt of gratitude and responsibility to ensure they receive the care they deserve. Last week, I was the first among Democratic Senate candidates or Senators in the nation to call for the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki. I took no pleasure in insisting that General Shinseki leave his post. He served his nation as a career officer, faithfully. As a Senator, I will demand that we hold government officials accountable for the operations of their departments. Failures of such magnitude in the VA hospital system demanded a change in leadership."
