    Shinseki is a good man, but my understanding is that he has large chunks of his management structure that are faking wait time stats in order to maintain their performance bonuses, rather than screaming bloody murder about ballooning wait times to make the problem visible, for the good of veterans, but thereby losing their performance bonuses.

    I don't think Shinseki is directly involved in the fraud in any way. But once he knew about it, he needed to take action immediately. He didn't, so he is not the person to clean up the mess, and he needs to resign (and loudly call for the cleanup in his resignation announcment).
