Brookfield, Wis. — After receiving a constituent complaint notifying her about a looming opioid prescription crisis at the Tomah VA, Senator Tammy Baldwin requested an investigation and kept the troublesome findings to herself instead of addressing the problem. Baldwin also denied a plea from VA whistleblower Ryan Honl to make the report public that would’ve spurred action.

“Senator Baldwin let our veterans down when she kept the report about the problems at the Tomah VA to herself and did nothing to address the situation,” said Leah Vukmir campaign manager Jess Ward. “Rather than making the findings public and demanding action for our veterans, Baldwin put politics first and chose to shield President Obama’s VA and herself from criticism.”
