A doll that appeared to be hanging from a noose with its feet bound together was recently discovered inside the facility.
According to the American Federation of Government Employees’ Union President Chandra Baker the doll was on display for about two weeks before being reported by an exterminator.
The VA has turned this matter over the department’s independent Inspector General for investigation.
