Congress Investigating Funding Abuses By 2 VA Execs

Congress is investigating Diana Rubens and Kimberly Graves, two senior Department of Veterans Affairs executives, for what lawmakers are calling “a shockingly unethical use of funds” — in what has become an all-too-common issue within the agency.

The women have been accused of abusing their status to get jobs and perks, and went so far as to incur roughly $400,000 of taxpayer money in relocation charges.

The pair are scheduled to stand before a House Veterans’ Affairs Committee hearing Oct. 21.
