Baldwin Ousts Staffer Over Tomah Investigation

Written by

US Senate Democrat Tammy Baldwin now admits she could have done more to seek federal action involving the over-prescription of painkillers at the V-A Medical Center in Tomah. In a column submitted to Wisconsin newspapers, Baldwin said her office should have done a better job "listening to and communicating with" a second constituent whom her office was working with on problems at Tomah. Whistle-blower Ryan Honl said he tried working with Baldwin's office, after learning that she stayed publicly silent on a report from the V-A last August that responded to a complaint about the Tomah drug matter as early as last March. This morning, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Baldwin fired her Number-two Wisconsin staffer after she reportedly asked Honl not to expose the matter publicly for fear that she'd get fired. Baldwin defended part of her actions, saying the V-A had not revealed in April or June that its Inspector General's office had uncovered similar problems. She never sought a Senate committee investigation until after the Center for Investigative Reporting recently uncovered that the numbers of prescription pain-killers at Tomah rose 500-percent from 2004-through-2012, even with fewer patients. The center also said a veteran died from an over-prescription. Baldwin said she has spoken with U-S Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald -- and he plans to launch a new investigation into the Tomah facility.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald says he will investigate a Tomah VA medical center that has come under scrutiny for overprescribing opiates.

McDonald says that the probe will look into allegations of overuse of opiates and retaliation against employees.

McDonald says the month-long investigation will begin this week. A 35-year-old former Marine died of an overdose in the hospital's inpatient unit in August.

McDonald says inquiries from Rep. Ron Kind and Sen. Tammy Baldwin brought the issue to his attention. The Wisconsin Democrats wrote to McDonald last week.

Baldwin says in a column published Sunday in newspapers across the state that she took responsibility for not acting sooner in the matter. Baldwin says she should have listened and communicated better with a constituent.
