VA Selling Out In LA

The VA is selling some pricey real estate in downtown LA.

"I think there's an army of developers and their consultants in Washington who see an opportunity to make a lot of money, and this VA and the [Bush] administration is hell-bent on giving them that opportunity," said Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.

Psst...Zev, VA Secretary Jim Nicholson is a successful developer from Denver Colorado and former Republican Party chairman. He also practiced law specializing in real estate, municipal finance and zoning law.
Now...I'm not saying anything, but it does make you think, right?

UPDATE: There was a similar case last year concerning property on which the new Denver VA Hospital was to be built. Fitzsimons Army Medical Center was Army property yet the VA had to pay for it? The VA ended up buying the land for 98 million!
