Obama to Tap Bob McDonald to Head VA

Posted: Updated:

 (CNN) -- President Barack Obama will nominate Bob McDonald -- a West Point graduate and former CEO of Procter & Gamble -- to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, a White House official told CNN on Sunday. McDonald would take over a troubled department.

The VA, a massive bureaucracy with more than 300,000 full-time employees, is under fire over allegations of alarming shortcomings at its medical facilities.

The controversy, as CNN first reported, involves delayed care with potentially fatal consequences in possibly dozens of cases.
