Searching for the TRUTH: One governor/two scenarios

August 23, 2013
Michael Croskey, president of Iowa Veterans Home Resident Council, Marshalltown , Times-Republican

Scenario #1 features the Iowa Veterans Home, my home. For over a year, we have brought into the public eye numerous examples of bullying, bad leadership, behavior and decisions by our Commandant and his Deputy resulting in a culture of fear, stress, and negative outcomes for us veterans. After the Governor's Office stopped two investigations seeking the truth, the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee held hearings resulting in recommendations to call on the Joint Government Oversight Committee to take it up and bring out the truth. But the Governor was dug in and got that squelched too. He has never welcomed the truth in our case and he's gone to great lengths to keep it covered.
