Summary As the VA wait time scandal unfolded nationally, local officials initially denied there were secret wait lists at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center, then widely considered a national model of excellence. But in September, 2014, KARE 11 News disclosed how lives may have been put at risk by record falsification in Minneapolis. KARE 11’s investigation detailed allegations of VA whistleblowers that went far beyond being pressured to keep secret wait lists to cover up serious appointment delays.
