Obama To Meet With VA Secretary Eric Shinseki

-
President Obama will meet with Secretary of Veteran Affairs Eric Shinseki and Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors today.

The White House says they'll discuss the controversy over cooked books that covered up deadly delays for veterans to receive care.

In Phoenix, the department reported fraudulent records -- including secret lists -- that covered up deadly waiting periods for veterans.

Nabors is aiding Shinseki with a review of the allegations.

Nabors will head to Phoenix tonight to interview the interim director of the VA office and visit the facility.

Meanwhile, the number of veterans affairs facilities under investigation has expanded to 26, according to the agency's office of inspector general.

Last week, the inspector general told a senate committee that 10 facilities were being investigated.
