Amdur Resignation Letter Excerpt

In a whirlwind today, Deborah Amdur just sent our her personal retirement email after I leaked the earlier decision email. She now cites health complications that started AFTER working at Phoenix VA.

Did working at Phoenix VA make her sick? Apparently, not only is the hostile environment at Phoenix VA making veterans sicker, but it is also causing VA employees to drop like flies, too?

Is there a vaccine for working with a-holes? I am sure someone like Ray Schinazi will invent it and sell it back to VA for millions.

This was quite a turnaround.

DEBORAH AMDUR BALLET COMPANY – PHOENIX VA

Just days ago, Channel 12 News produced a story about Steve Cooper, a retired Army veteran suffering from advanced stage prostate cancer at 44. VA allegedly missed his cancer, and as a result, Cooper may die. Adding insult to injury, Phoenix VA was unable to schedule Cooper for health care consults in a reasonable time. In response, Cooper armed himself with a recorder to take action.

When he finally got an appointment, Cooper confirmed that Phoenix VA is still overloading its doctors and making it near impossible to schedule appointments by eliminating call options for primary care doctors.

This morning, we knew Amdur would need to break out her best ballerina shoes to walk the tightrope this time – – it is her third scandal VA brought her in on to clean up – – so I am sure she thought she was up for it.

But by this morning, the decision was made that she would retire. The first announcement came out to internal employees and indicated Amdur had a new health condition that caused her to need to suddenly resign. Apparently, SUCKING AT YOUR JOB is now a health condition.

Her formal announcement was set to go out next week, but after I published the internal email that she was out, she then sent off the most recent announcement. That announcement outlines when she apparently got too sick to keep going.

In the newest email, Amdur cites health complications that apparently started only after starting her work at Phoenix VA. Did the hostile atmosphere at Phoenix make Amdur sick?

  1. I guess staff can’t stand the heat, physically and mentally. Same problem here. Not a desirable location for retirement or employment. Most physicians stay only as long as they have to stay. Too many better locations for a family.

  2. My guess is her legal advisors suggested the “sick AFTER starting working at Phoenix VAMC…”, so it will help propel her forthcoming legal suit of Workman’s Comp or whatever the equiv. she may have cooked-up to sue for environmental reasons. Being around assholes would be an environmental hazard but if the person already WAS an asshole at previous location, well it matters very little if such a vaccine exists. She had a previous existing condition of asshole so it could not be Phoenix-specific, could it? 🙂

    Just wait for it…like our last two lovely VA Fraudsters with ‘relocation scandal’, she is going to be a hard turd to flush completely and will be a floater for a good while in news here.

    • I think you’re right namnibor.

      She likely already had a case of “asshole” prior to Phoenix. Perhaps she picked it up in Tomah or Vermont while cleaning up scandals caused by others infected with “asshole.” God only knows just how contagious “asshole” is these days. The rank and file in VA have no chance.

      They need to get vaccinated before starting, I suspect.

      • Since there is an opening, I encourage you to apply for the Director position. Clearly you have what it takes, so start beefing up that resume!

      • “assholitis” still kicking crap out to other VAs such as Andrea Conti now in Black Hills Health Care System- South Dakota as she Prescott, Arizona, where she served as Service Line Manager Specialty and Diagnostics Services and Chief, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Service for three years.
        She has blood on her hands from veterans dying waiting for care here in SD! 🙁 she also is waiting for others to die due to lack of obtaining proper medical care as well! She needs to go all she cares about it seems is her bonus $$ or greed n power, how can she destroy more lives yet no one seems to look at SD closely sadly too many vets have also shot themselves last Oct 2015 on VA Grounds but not a word nationally! As the Long Island VA veteran, this week, who ate a gun got national attention WHY is that??
        The BHHCS-CoS and the rest of the Senior Executive Staff need to be investigated as well!

      • @ Ben The upper management is flaming don’t you mean. Obviously looking at McDuck who is the poster boy for $3 Bill. VA has a case of constipation caused by bowel obstruction by cranium (theirs or somebody elses)

  3. She as a scandalous person and also for lying, she should never get her benefits. How many of these criminals in the management system are getting paid out of tax dollars after they are found to be what I call just crooks. TOO MANY! While vets have to fight for their benefits if and when they get them.

  4. Lolz, the head of a vast network of a multitude of health care professionals surrounding her……..and the very best advice they have for her medically is to quit and leave. That must be one powerful case of the sniffles. The combined efffort of all the doctors within VHA under her supervision, and the best advice they have is to leave.

    Maybe VA doctors do give great advice after all?

  5. I am curious what “I have great confidence in each of you”, means. Each of who? Also, what great things were accomplished? From what I have been reading, Sir busy Ben, Arizona has had continuous problems for a while. I wonder if things can ever get better. Once I was out of the Army, I was called a Civilian. All I want is what other civilians want, decent medical care, without making millionaires out of poorly trained civil servants. Without being treated like crap by smug and apathetic clerks that I am forced to be nice to, or they can, and will make my life harder that it has to be. No veteran, healthy or sick should have to deal with the VA.

      • Definitely, great work! However, I am wondering what her “exposure” is going to be that triggered her newfound anxieties? Too bad the VA cannot grasp what any given Vet deals with PTSD and more on a daily basis but the VA Meat Grinder can pull out of it’s South side…”Oh, I am stepping-down due to health…”…never mind the LIVES and HEALTH of the very Vets she was supposed to be giving World Class Care to?!!

        Remember, The VA Cares. The Assholes Care about themselves. That’s why they are assholes.

        Rant Out. Great week and Friday, Ben!

      • Great job Ben!! keep up the great work for all vets!

        Like “RedTurtle” how can you go after exposing more of these DBC Flags from aka Kangaroo Courts be reigned in nationwide in the VA System???? be good for all veterans! clerks, RN, staff, etc., should not have this power over anyone! let alone an injured veteran needing care!

      • Congratulations, Ben. Great work.
        Now, if the rest of the rats on Titanic would jump ship. We just might have something worthwhile to celebrate!

  6. I wish someone would come look at the Carl Vinson VAMC in Dublin, Ga. This place is a joke. Crap as bad if not worse than the other facilities we hear of, But you never hear about Dublin. The previous Director ‘Retired” 2 days before he was to be brought up on charges, Was escorted off property by VA Cops yet still got retirement benefits. The nepotism is rampant and disgusting not to mention the Flagging of files. I know, mine has a couple. All lies. Luckily after 15 years, I finally got moved to team with BEST doc in the facility. I have been fighting with “Fee” for over 16 months to get outside Neurosurgeon. They butt heads with Health Net on every turn. Finally got to see one last week. He says need surgery asap. VERY LUCKY I haven’t become paralyzed from neck down. Should have been done many moons ago. Doc put in 4 referrals, got approved 3 times just to have someone else comes in and say NOPE. There is so0 much illegal, immoral, and just plain asinine activity going on up here it stinks to high heaven. Yet nothing ever in the public about it. As far as Opioids, you have to BEG for anything here. I read of the Tomah type issues and down here lucky to get aspirin. I have been on same 2 pain meds for 16 years, finally got moved up a notch. Finally getting SOME ease off of pain. NOT! Been in this pain so long, {1992 broke neck} just have learned to DEAL with best I can. Lost everything but who cares. VA doesn’t. Oh well, sorry for the VENT, just gets so damn demoralizing some time. Maybe feel better after surgery to have entire neck fused with plates and screws next week.. Stiff neck, hopefully LESS PAIN!

  7. You know what’s ironic is that if she does have a significant health issue, it wasn’t diagnosed at Phoenix VA, and she has the option to retire and get health care privately.
    For as short of time as she’s been there, if she were a veteran, she would still be waiting to see a doctor at Phoenix for that diagnosis.

      • That is a VERY useful web site Ron, and will do what you have been telling vets. Put it in writing so McDonald can’t claim he did not know.

        If Neil is reading this, or if you can contact him, I suggest adding a section for Congressional review. Some congressional sides are very helpful in helping a veteran with the VA, and other congressional or Senate sides refuse to respond to a request for help.

        Knowing whether a congressional office is helpful or a waste of time would be useful.

  8. This is a trilogy of horror for VA management. I have appreciated this site. It has given me much insight as to how i should approach my struggles with the VA, VAOIG, third party contractors and upper management. The comments section often shows how resilient most veterans really are.Thank you all.

    Dear Benjamin Krause,

    Working in “Mexico’s Second Largest City [Arizona Republic]” is not easy.

    Since I have been here since 02/14/1993—Leaving Los Angeles after Five Years of Treason there [1998 Cox Report] and the Murders that were Global—it is hard to keep a job.

    Treason is all around—it comes to you.

    Use the word.

    Sincerely,

    Don Karg

  10. Could this be the beginning of the RATS leaving the sinking ship???? Get her benefits while the ship’s still floating……….You know she’s not leaving empty handed……..

  11. I would say that since Deborah Amdur is apparently a “VA CLEANER”, (sent to various scandal-laden VAMC), that Deborah Amdur surely must be made of toilet paper and Febreeze to be sent to so many VA shit-holes and she simply became such a “soiled” piece of toilet paper she is no longer any use to the leaky rear-end of the VA Meat Grinder so a fire hose is being used on the rear-end of the VA Meat Grinder until a replacement “wiper, err, cleaner” can be made permanent. 🙂 **FLUSH** “Another one bites the dust…”

  12. PENDEJO VETS VA WILL KEEP ON KILLING VETS FOR THE BONOUS $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

  13. FYI- If any Vet’s are missing medication from the mail from the VA, a massive sting operation caught 33 USPS stealing and hoarding mail, to include Veteran’s Medications sent in mail; USPS employees accused of hoarding parcels, stealing veterans’ medication
