Michigan TV station gets $38K FOIA bill as Home for Veterans investigation continues

A local lawmaker is asking questions about a now year-long investigation of possible criminal behavior at the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans by the state's Attorney General.

The investigation started in May of last year and, to date, no criminal charges have been announced by Attorney General Bill Schuette.

It's a story the WZZM 13 Watchdog team has been following for nearly two years. Attorney General Schuette told us last year his current investigation was prompted by an auditor general report released in February 2016 that showed some very embarrassing problems at that facility. One of the most significant issues in the report involved caregivers not checking on members.
