(Washington, DC) -- Embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki says it's been a challenging few weeks for the VA, but isn't saying much else. He's speaking to a veterans group this morning to talk about reducing the number of homeless veterans. So far, he hasn't directly addressed growing controversy over accusations that VA hospitals kept secret waiting lists. At least 40 people may have died as a result of mismanagement at a Veterans Affairs hospital in Phoenix. Meanwhile, more people are calling on Shinseki to resign.
