VA’s John Sepulveda pleads the fifth

| October 31, 2013

Remember those training seminars a few years ago that the VA held which cost us American taxpayers millions of dollars? Well, Congress has been exercising it’s oversight responsibility finally and questioning the people responsible for those lavish parties. John Sepulveda is the latest, the third, to hide behind the fifth amendment, according to the Washington Times link sent to us by Country Singer;

John Sepulveda oversaw the pair of human resources training conferences that cost more than $6 million combined, drawing comparisons to an infamous 2010 General Services Administration conference scandal that drew taxpayer ire.

“It’s a privilege to remain silent, sir,” Mr. Sepulveda told House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican.

His refusal to answer questions comes months after two other officials appeared before Congress and pleaded the Fifth Amendment in unrelated scandals.

I guess we have no right to find out what happened to our six million bucks and who made the decisions to hold these fêtes for the folks who won’t process veterans’ disability claims in a timely manner. I don’t think they’re protecting themselves, but rather a former general who was fixated on a hat that he lost in 1979.

    I’d like to bitch slap him with a wet bag of dicks while he munches on some ass…. Vets are dropped from Tricare prime while this guy pisses away 6 mil on a conference for a bunch of other ball sacks to get TDY to go to a fuggin’ party? What a smug son of a bitch. All he’ll get is re-assigned to another position while he keeps his current pay…

    I wish these fucksticks would be found in contempt of Congress and if that had any *REAL* meaning, be fired, sent to federal prison until they cough up. Bitches.

  3. OWB says:

    Disgusting, to say the least. Makes one wonder if that honor and duty thing ever meant anything to him and his ilk. Clearly it does not now.

    Just suck it up and tell the truth, fool!

    Have fun waiting for, Old Tanker. But don’t hold your breath.

    As long as there is tax money available, it’s the gubmint’s to spend — sorry, I meant piss away on whatever it chooses, and we just get to watch our money go down a black hole.

  5. Eric says:

    And to follow up, as long as these minions keep protecting the Oligarchy, they’ll never be held accountable.

  6. Habap says:

    One would hope that someone who reports to him would be willing to testify to Congress about it. I can think of some bosses that I’ve had whose lunacy I’d love to expose. One at Social Security comes directly to mind. Nothing illegal, just moronic.

    UGH!

  8. A Proud Infidel says:

    Shitballs like that need to be face and throat punched at least a dozen times a day, and yes, brass knuckles should be allowed!

    6 million dollars? That is 168 Years of a Veteran with 100% disability’s pension.
