Shinseki resigns as head of Veterans Affairs following scandal

President Obama announced the resignation of Veterans Affairs secretary Eric Shinseki on Friday after a brief meeting between the two at the White House. Shinseki, a decorated war veteran, was seen as damaged following a scandal over nationwide gaming of treatment numbers at VA hospitals, and more than a hundred members of Congress from both parties had called for him to step down.
