As you can tell from her Senate web site.
Senator Murray is Chair of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee and is a member of the Senate appropriations subcommittee that funds the Department of Veterans Affairs. She has used these positions everyday to fight for the needs of veterans.
Senator Murray has been a tireless advocate for veterans, fighting for increased funding for veterans health care, increased benefits, housing assistance, new veterans clinics throughout Washington state, and accountability from the VA. She has fought for increased education benefits, expanded employment assistance, and reduced wait times for veterans with pending claims.
I can not imagine how such a "tireless advocate" missed the Veterans Administration scandal. Perhaps one of our local reporters will ask her why she missed the scandal — but I wouldn't suggest that you hold your breath waiting for them to ask her that kind of question.
