ALL of them are criminals.Government watchdog alleges McCarthy exerted improper influence in VA clinic bidding process
A nonprofit government watchdog group has filed a formal complaint with the inspector general of the Department of Veterans Affairs alleging that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has exercised improper influence over the bidding process for a long-delayed VA health clinic in Bakersfield.
The letter, sent by Washington, D.C.-based Campaign for Accountability and addressed to VA Inspector General Michael J. Missal, claims the Bakersfield Republican actively promoted a clinic development proposal from San Diego-based SASD Development Group over another proposal by the owners of the current clinic on Westwind Drive.
In its letter, Campaign for Accountability asks the inspector general to "investigate discrepancies" in the competitive bidding process. "Evidence suggests," the letter continues, "House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy may be improperly exerting influence, upending the regular decision-making process."
