Sen. Isakson calling for hearing over Atlanta VA scandal | www.wsbtv.com

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A Georgia senator is calling for hearings following a series of scathing federal reports about gross mismanagement at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, reports first uncovered by Channel 2 Action News.

Those reports blamed mismanagement by leaders at the Department of Veterans Affairs hospital for patient deaths. Several Georgia U.S. House representatives have pushed for hearings. Now, Channel 2 investigative reporter Aaron Diamant has learned there is a push on the Senate side for hearings in metro Atlanta, and soon.

“We need to find out where mistakes were made,” U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., told Diamant. “People should be held accountable, there’s no question about that.”
