In Wake of Scandal, VA Nominees Stuck in Senate Limbo

Key jobs at the Department of Veterans Affairs remain vacant as the Senate deals with treatment of veterans and a backlog of nominees.

WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 15: U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki (L) and Veterans Affairs Undersecretary for Health Robert Petzel testify before the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee about wait times veterans face to get medical care May 15, 2014 in Washington, DC. The American Legion called Monday for the resignation of Shinseki amid reports by former and current VA employees that up to 40 patients may have died because of delayed treatment at an agency hospital in Phoenix, Arizona.
