Union Officials Admit They Let Veterans Die Rather Than Talk To Republicans

Homeless U.S. military veterans stand in line for free services at a "Stand Down" event hosted by the Department of Veterans Affairs on November 3, 2011 in Denver, Colorado. A week ahead of Veterans Day, more than 500 homeless veterans were expected to attend the event, where they received free medical care, winter clothing, employment assistance and were able to see a judge to resolve legal issues. Organizers say the homeless veterans population has surged in recent years with the high national unemployment rate. Stand Down is a military term that means a temporary stop of offensive military action.  (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

A federal employee union president is wracked with regret because veterans likely died at a time when she knew about gross misconduct within her Department of Veterans Affairs facility but didn’t tell congressional leaders because they were Republicans.

“If I would’ve gone to him two years ago, who knows what kind of lives could’ve been saved,” Germaine Clarno told a radio interviewer Monday, referring to the Republican leader of a VA subcommittee. Clarno, a lifelong Democrat and social worker at the Hines Veterans Affairs Hospital in Hines, Ill., has been president of the union representing doctors at the hospital since before the deadly wait-time scandal unfolded.

  1. This idiot broad had a moral and LEGAL duty to report negligence, misconduct and fraud to the proper authorities in her state as well as inform the Republican leader. She needs to be arrested and charged with numerous felonies including manslaughter. Her feelz are more important then men who served this country. I see her, I will blacken her eyes, and permanently rearrange her face and life!

  2. It doesn't happen often, but I don't know to respond. I do know this should not be tolerated and those guilty need to be held accountable. I just don't know if that means arrested and tried, or just taken outback and shot.
