Biden's Pick Faces Tough Senate Confirmation Battle

Last month, Joe Biden's administration advanced the nomination of Tanya Bradsher to be deputy secretary at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Bradsher is the current chief of staff to VA Secretary Denis McDonough.

It's pretty clear that Bradsher doesn't have the experience or the skills to handle this role, but that seems to be par for the course for this administration.

In fact, half of the White House was built on the idea that accomplishments simply don't matter.

Kamala Harris isn't America's vice president because she has anything meaningful to contribute. Joe Biden told us before picking her that he was NOT going to choose somebody based on qualifications or skills.

He was going to pick somebody based on gender and race. It was going to be a Black woman running with him, and other applicants need not apply.

It seems as though that theme has continued even to the administration's other nominations.

Bradsher's biggest accomplishment of her career has been having "authority over the VA Integrated Enterprise Workflow Solution Case and Correspondence Management, also known as the VIEWS CCM system, which a recent review conducted by the department’s Office of Information Technology determined had serious flaws," according to Fox News.

Peter C. Rizzo is a certified fraud examiner.

Rizzo is on record for being one of three VA whistleblowers about the deficiencies of Bradsher's system.

He has SERIOUS problems with this nomination.

"The president nominated this individual who was responsible for maintaining this system," Rizzo said. "I certainly wouldn’t want someone of her caliber in the number-two spot at the VA. The VA and our nation’s veterans deserve better."

Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, also opposes the nomination:

If confirmed, Ms. Bradsher would be in charge of the VA’s effort to modernize veterans’ electronic health record. This involves the healthcare records of millions of veterans, which obviously contain huge amounts of sensitive information. Ms. Bradsher’s failures on privacy issues as chief of staff and her lack of transparency to the Veterans Affairs Committee show that we can’t trust her to secure this sensitive information or to take the lead and address agency failures, of which VA has many.
