YOU: DO A SHADY LAND DEAL FOR VA. YOUR BOSS: HERE, HAVE A BIG PROMOTION: In a case that speaks volumes about the management culture in the Department of Veterans Affairs, a project manager on a new medical center in North Carolina was implicated in the government buying land owned by a relative. She admitted to the VA inspector general that she “may have” alerted family members to the forthcoming land selection and purchase, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group’s Luke Rosiak.

“Within three months, in June 2015, Gillis was put on a detail to serve as acting associate director, the second-highest position in the hospital, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. The elevation was a big promotion considering¬†the fact that others were more senior and higher-ranked,” Rosiak reports.

But Gillis was required to take “refresher ethics training.”
