A criminal investigation has been opened into mismanagement at the Indiana Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Various reports indicate that the office of Marion County Prosecutor, Terry Curry confirmed the investigation Tuesday and says three agency employees recently resigned following media reports about the department.
The resignations are part of a reorganization led by the agency’s new director, Dennis Wimer, who has pledged to restore confidence. The resigning employees either approved or received grants or welfare benefits administered by the agency.
Indiana’s inspector general earlier found mismanagement but insufficient evidence for criminal or ethics charges. The agency’s leader resigned in December after The Indianapolis Star and WRTV-TV in Indianapolis questioned its administration of the Military Family Relief Fund, which is supported by fees from specialty veteran license plates.
