Veterans in Support of VA Whistleblower Dr. Klein Friday May 12
 
Tampa, FL – May 9, 2017.  Veterans groups and supporters will gather for a national press conference and rally in Poplar Bluff, Missouri at Noon on Friday, May 12th to demonstrate support for VA Whistleblowers across the country.
 
Honorary invitees in support of our Veterans include: Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Claire McCaskill, Senator Roy Blunt, Congressman Jason Smith, Senator Johnny Isakson and Senator Jon Tester.
 
VA Whistleblower speakers include: Brandon Coleman, Phoenix VA, and Germaine Clarno, Chicago Hines VA. 
 
The crisis in Veterans healthcare and disability benefits has been covered extensively on national news networks including a recent Fox News interview with Dr. Klein, a VA whistleblower from Poplar Bluff, Missouri whose concerns for patients not having access to care drove him to speak up on their behalf. Now Dr. Klein needs Veterans to show their support for him.
 
On April 27, President Trump signed a new Executive Order creating the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection to report to Secretary Shulkin as a means of improving conditions at the VA, protect VA whistleblowers, and hold those responsible accountable. The President gave VA 45 days to establish the office and appoint an Executive Director, but no known action has taken place. Dr. Klein was hopeful that the President’s involvement would help him keep his job and allow him to again see patients suffering in pain. On Friday, May 12, Dr. Klein’s Stay Order issued by the Merits Systems Protection Board will expire and Veterans will likely lose another advocate. 
 
“The Office of Special Counsel got involved, then the Merit System Protection Board got involved, then US Senators got involved, yet the VA Hospital in Poplar Bluff has disregarded the law and the President’s new Executive Order protecting VA whistleblowers.” – Natalie Khawam, Attorney for Dr. Klein & President of the Whistleblower Law Firm. 
 
We ask that you come in support of VA Whistleblowers who care about protecting our Veterans! 
 
Veterans and supporters will rally at Noon at the Highland Drive Church of Christ, located at: 1601 Highland Drive Popular Bluff, Missouri, 63901, which is adjacent to the John J. Pershing VA hospital, on Friday May 12. Organizers emphasize that the demonstration will follow all laws and will not disrupt any VA activities or anyone coming to or leaving the hospital.
