Growing Calls For VA Head To Resign



(AP) A Democratic senator is now adding his voices to calls for Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to resign.

Senator Mark Udall of Colorado says today's release of an internal investigation into the scandal over VA medical care has revealed "systemic issues" and it's time for Shinseki to go.

The VA's inspector general found the average wait time for care at the Phoenix VA hospital was 115 days and records were manipulated records to cover it up.

Udall faces a tight re-election race against Republican Rep. Cory Gardner.
