Former GSA Administrator Martha Johnson sits down with Women of Washington hosts Aileen Black and GiGi Schumm to offer an insider's perspective on Eric Shinseki's recent resignation from the Veterans Affairs Department.
The departure of Secretary Eric Shinseki at the Department of Veterans Affairs doesn't mean the crisis there is over. The next step is managing through the crisis. Martha Johnson was administrator at the General Services Administration when the conference scandal blew up at GSA. She's the first guest on a new program on Federal News Radio called Women in Washington. It debuts this coming Wednesday at 9 a.m., right after the Federal Drive. Aileen Black and Gigi Schumm host the show. Martha tells In Depth with Francis Rose the problem Secretary Shinseki found isn't unique to VA.
