But they have no money for the veterans’ suicide hotline. This is why we fight. This corrupt garbarge has to stop.

Via Daily Caller.

A Department of Veterans Affairs manager who steered a $4 million contract to a relative was promoted to the second-highest position in the hospital weeks after she was caught and exposed in the national media.

Wendy Gillis was the project manager in charge of building a new health center for the Fayetteville, North Carolina VA hospital, which included helping find a plot of land to build it on.

The hospital evaluated 16 plots, five of which were owned by relatives of Gillis. A committee ranked them by suitability, and a non-Gillis plot was determined to be best. But in an “unusual” move, the VA selected land owned by William Gillis instead, and paid him $4.25 million.

“Oh my God, I shouldn’t be here,” Wendy Gillis said when scoping out her relative’s land for government purchase, according to the IG report. Her own house sits on land gifted by William Gillis, and she admitted she “may have” alerted family members of the bidding opportunity…

Within three months, in June 2015, Gillis was put on a detail to serve as acting associate director, the second-highest position in the hospital, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The elevation was a big promotion considering the fact that others were more senior and higher-ranked.
