Report: VA Inspector General Quit After Masturbating in Public View
December 8, 2015
An acting inspector general for the Veterans Affairs Department resigned in 2008 after being seen masturbating in an all-glass conference room visible to people across the street, according to a report Sunday in The Daily Caller.
The Washington, D.C.-based online news outlet said its article about XXXXXX is based on a previously undisclosed report by the Inspector General of the Interior Department, which the Caller obtained.
Military.com has requested but not yet received the document from the Interior Department, which took over the case to provide an independent investigation after VA officials concluded the matter involved their boss.
When reached by telephone at his home, XXXXXX said the incident never occurred and described the allegation as "absolutely insane." The U.S. Attorney's Office reviewed the accusation and decided it was unfounded, he said.
"They found nothing wrong and they closed the case," he said. "Both the VA and Interior reviewed the matter. The matter was referred to US Attorney's Office for consideration, and they found it unfounded and closed the case and did not pursue it."
He added, "If I had [done it], you can be rest assured that I would have been held accountable for that. I would have been charged with a crime and I would have had to go to court to face it. But all the evidence, all the interviews and the U.S. Attorney's Office concluded that there was nothing to charge me with."
XXXXXX also said he decided to retire, not resign.

Strange Story Needed to Be Told Now?
I really like Military.com but right now I am not sure why they would do this story. It is about something that happened way back in 2008. I removed the man's name. Just wish if they were going to take a look back at what has been going on for the last 8 years, they'd cover what little Congress has done about veterans trying to get care from the VA because nothing has changed on that.
