MOUNTING PRESSURE FOR SHINSEKI TO RESIGN AFTER NEW REVELATIONS ... Congressional support for embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki dwindled further Wednesday in the wake of a new report documenting multiple unofficial wait lists of veterans seeking care at a Phoenix facility.1,700 veterans also waiting to be seen did not appear on any list.
Colorado’s Mark Udall – who is up for re-election this year – became the first Democratic senator to call for Shinseki to resign. “Secretary Shinseki must step down," Udall said in a statement. "We need new leadership who will demand accountability to fix these problems.”
