Hundreds of rape cases mishandled by Veterans Administration
CNN’s Kyra Phillips talked to Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL) Monday about a Government Accountability Report (GAO) revealing that almost 300 sexual assault cases were mishandled by the Veterans Administration.
“We know it was patient on patient, patient to employee, employee to patient,” Miller said. “It was a myriad of people within the system. The thing that concerns us greatly, besides the facts that the sexual assaults occurred, is that they did not report it to the upper folks. So people are unaware of these issues because they’re not being reported as required by regulation.”
