Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin Was Alerted to WI VA Scandal Months Ago, But Did Nothing

And now that the scandal has broken wide without her assistance, she's calling for an investigation, chop-chop, on the snap and stat.

But why did she not call for this investigation when a whistleblower risked his ass to tell her about it?

Tammy's still not talking.

Even as Sen. Tammy Baldwin calls for the U.S. Department of Justice to launch "an immediate" investigation into allegations the Tomah Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Tomah overprescribed opiate-based pain medication, the Madison Democrat has yet to disclose details on the reported firing of one of her top state aides in the wake of a growing scandal.

Baldwin did not return Wisconsin Reporter's calls and emails Tuesday seeking comment nearly a month after she reportedly fired Marquette Baylor, who led Baldwin's Milwaukee office.

An investigative story last month found Baldwin did nothing with an inspection report warning Tomah VA medical center staff members have prescribed potentially dangerous amounts of pain pills to patients.

...

But Baldwin did not call for an investigation until after an investigative report detailing the concerns broke in early January, months after a whistleblower reportedly begged Baldwin's office to do something.

Baldwin has now fired Baylor. I guess the Alibi is being set up: The head honcho didn't know, it was all this underling's fault...
