Veteran's Home Administrator is Fired, then Re-instated, now Re-fired

The administrator who oversees one state's largest nursing home for veterans has been fired for a second time in three months. The Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary removed the administrator from his position at the Veterans Home on Friday due to inconsistencies in financial records.

The administrator was fired in August while he was acting secretary when then-Secretary was serving in Iraq. After the secretary returned, he reinstated the administrator after an investigation into overspending at the home did not lead to criminal charges against anyone.

The board that oversees the agency fired the worker again last week and replaced him. They are now reviewing all senior management positions at the agency. For more, read the story.
