Many of us have heard of “Candid Camera”, where they play practical jokes on people, and then, with their permission, the video tape is aired on TV.
Well, the VA also has their “Candid Cameras”. I wonder WHAT they are using them for?
And, it sounds like THIS candid camera, is not the VA’s only one, either because we have learned over and over, if it happens in one Regional Office (or VAMC) it is probably happening in many more.
This is a new one, however. First the VA Admits to the “covert camera“, then denies it was installed without the family’s knowledge. Usually, the VA is just the opposite. They first “deny”, then, later, when confronted with irrefutable evidence, they admit to it, as in shreddergate 1.
Once again this reeks of the VA’s lack of accountability, with a capital “A”. Isnt it time the VA be responsible to “SOMEONE” other than their own VAOIG?
P.S. I have to admit this is a strange one. This post simply disappeared back into draft mode after I published it this morning. There are several comments attached so I will attempt to reconstruct those as well. Perhaps vA isn’t enchanted with our news efforts.
