MINNEAPOLIS - According to official medical records, a former Minnesota Marine apparently contacted the Minneapolis VA from his grave to cancel an existing appointment and reschedule it.

(The family has filed a wrongful death tort claim against the VA.)

Nice find Berta!! Talk about getting caught red-handed. The sad part is that this is SO VERY COMMON; and no one will pay the price this young veteran paid for this provable malfeasance. Knowingly and willfully (as opposed to accidentally or sloppily) entering false information into official VA medical records is a federal crime akin to making false statements to LEOs and perjury. It is also a violation of the "standard of care" requirement for medical professionals/facilities.

Now that the VAOIG has shown his true colors as a lap dog for the high level VA officials by allowing the insertion of "cannot conclusively assert," we can be certain that those charges won't be pursued. The required level of proof to prevail in a civil suit (FTCA) is "preponderance of evidence" and in a criminal case--"beyond a reasonable doubt." Griffin is only the "Acting" IG-- and boy ain't that the truth!! Nice act.
