I stood up for Vets and lost my job, LaMalfa used me to tell the truth and let the VA get away with it.
I am a 100% disabled Marine Corps Veteran of 10 years. In 2014, I was contacted by Erin Ryan and Doug LaMalfa to help a Veteran who was illegally being denied his benefits. I assisted the Veteran and provided evidence of the illegal practices of the Oakland VA regional office to LaMalfa in a statement he read to Congress that got me removed 8 days later by voicemail. In an October 2016 OSC press release https://osc.gov/News/pr16-34.pdf the OSC lied about who the whistleblowers were, who was fired, and refused to correct the statement to reflect the truth. I asked LaMalfa to tell the truth but he and his aid, Erin Ryan refused to admit I helped them at all. Please ask LaMalfa to tell the truth about Tony Silveria.
Don’t believe me, read for yourself.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2015/03/21/oakland-va-files-reveal-heartbreak-delays/ “In a House speech, LaMalfa read letters from frustrated Oakland employees, including Brown and Tony Silveria — two whistle-blowers who now are speaking publicly. Silveria, a retired Marine, said he was let go “eight days after my letter was read on the floor of the House.”
