In the aftermath of the independent review by the VA's inspector general, and a growing number of congressional lawmakers calling for Eric Shinseki to step down, the embattled Veterans Affairs secretary resigned on May 30. Obama said Shinseki is a "champion" who has done "extraordinary work," but accepted the resignation because the secretary believed he would be a distraction in the effort to fix the VA's ongoing, systemic problems.
