White House sends Obama aide to investigate deaths linked to VA center in Phoenix

The Washington Post, May 21, 2014
One of President Obama's top aides is being dispatched to Phoenix this week to investigate deaths allegedly connected to a Department of Veterans Affairs medical center there, part of the administration's efforts to contain growing outrage over delays in treatment and accusations of rigged recordkeeping at veterans hospitals. Rob Nabors, a White House deputy chief of staff, has been assigned to assist top VA officials in probing allegations of wrong¬doing by staffers at the Phoenix facility and elsewhere, the White House said Tuesday. He will be meeting with Arizona hospital officials Thursday after gathering Wednesday with representatives from several veterans groups in Washington, officials said.
