  On Monday, June 9, 2014, a Department of Veterans Affairs audit flagged Atlanta's VA Medical Center, and four other Georgia facilities, for further review.  The audit and the deeper investigations come amid rising anger over long wait times for veterans seeking care, and allegations that staffers in some VA facilities falsified records in order to make the wait times appear shorter than they really are.  Georgia Republican U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson is a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.  He spoke with WABE's Denis O'Hayer about the latest developments.
