VA fires Brian Hawkins again

| September 20, 2017 | 31 Comments

Brian Hawkins was fired from his job as director of the DC VA hospital system for “the hospital putting veterans at “unnecessary risk,”” according to a VAOIG preliminary report released in early summer. The Merit Systems Protection Board ordered the VA to rehire him on August 2d.

Well he’s been fired again, according to Stars & Stripes;

The VA inspector general released more findings in August that Hawkins sent sensitive information to private email accounts belonging to him and his wife.

The office found the emails while investigating whether Hawkins had purposefully delayed an Administrative Investigative Board inquiry about thousands of dollars in employee bonuses given without justification. Though the inspector general found the investigation into the bonuses was delayed by hospital personnel, the office did not confirm Hawkins had impeded it. Inspectors did determine he sent sensitive personnel information to his spouse – a violation of VA policy.

The VA said Wednesday that it began the process of firing Hawkins again after the report was released.

Maybe he’ll stay fired this time, but I’m not holding my breath.

    Just how many times does a lower-than-whale shit lowlife like him have to get fired before he STAYS that way?

    Once a shitbag, always a shitbag….that’s the problem…

      The primary shitbag in this instance, VOV, is the damned government employees union that renders tens of thousands of shitbags virtually impervious to firing.

      We need to make government employee unions illegal once again. They have proven to be just as evil as was feared before JFK allowed them to exist with an executive order.

      • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

        Yep, they need to be done away with, starting with the AFGE. I remember when Ronald Reagan did away with the Air Traffic Comtrollers Union and many in the Aviation field said doing that got rid of a lot of slackers and dirtbags.

    I sent this to Jonn 😀

    VA: We apologise for the fault in the hospital. Those responsible have been sacked.

    Federal Merit Systems Protection Board: LOL nope.

    VA: We apologise again for the fault in the hospital. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked.

    I need to find one of those never-can-be-fired Senior Executive jobs.

    Why is it that VA employees seem to have more job security than any other Civil Service employees?

  7. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    So he will be fired for the second time.

    Well, he will be re-hired on appeal, and then finally fired for ever.

    It is called “three strikes” and you are out program.

    He’s got that damn white privilege thing going for hi…
    Oh wait…
    Never mind…

    As a federal employee, I like the fact that I don’t have to kiss ass to make sure no one arbitrarily just fires me without due process, but WTF?!?

    Want to reform the VA? First step is disbanding that damn protection racket of a Board.

    Too much fiber in someone’s diet. Circles the bowl but does not go down.

    Also, has gold tie. Will float back up at ‘prosperity leader’. Will be asking for your dollars soon in a gofundme or church hall near you soon.

    don’t like the post? GFY and eat me raw.

  12. Mark Lauer says:

    You can’t fire him again….he’s still black! That would be racism.

  13. USMC Steve says:

    Tell the crooked bastard that this time they are upping the ante, and filing any criminal charges they can come up with. Then tell everyone whose info he compromised what happened so they can sue the dude. That ought to keep him busy for a while. If he is fired for acting outside the lawful scope of his duties, the government does not have to provide him a lawyer when he gets sued, so there is more money out his pocket.

    Some turds just will not flush.
