MADISON – The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a revealing story, uncovering Kevin Nicholson‘s lack of actions concerning the care of Wisconsin veterans at Wisconsin Veterans Home at King.

Nicholson, member of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs board, “didn’t attend a Veterans Affairs board meeting at King in July 2016 or respond to emails with concerns about the home going back to at least February 2013.” The story goes on to say that he claimed to have communicated with the administration but, “Nicholson didn’t provide specific examples of that communication beyond saying he had spoken with then-state veterans affairs secretary John Scocos.”

“Kevin Nicholson was in a position to stop the problems at Wisconsin Veterans Home at King and he did nothing until it was politically expedient,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby. “Kevin Nicholson failed Wisconsin’s veterans.”
