Good lord:

An official at the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said Monday that Department of Veterans Affairs officials are known to be retaliating against VA whistleblowers by illegally going through their medical records, in an apparent attempt to harass and discredit these whistleblowers.

This surprising testimony from Special Counsel Carolyn Lerner was delivered at a House Veterans Affairs subcommittee hearing, which was called to discuss the problems whistleblowers face when they try to expose the ongoing failure of the VA to provide medical care to veterans.

I’m afraid there’s no reforming the VA. Give each veteran a voucher good anywhere for treatment of health issues related to their service — and then nuke the entire VA from orbit.

It’s the only way to be sure.
