Minnesota VA official under scrutiny for transfer to St. Paul


A local Veterans Affairs official is accused of financial misdealings for arranging to have herself transferred from the East Coast to St. Paul, keeping a higher rate of pay for a lower level of responsibility and claiming more than $100,000 in moving expenses.

The VA inspector general’s office said it has referred the case of Kimberly Graves and another VA official to the U.S. attorney for possible criminal prosecution. It also recommends that actions be taken to decide whether Graves, who remains head of the VA’s St. Paul office of the Veterans Benefits Administration, should return $129,000 in moving expenses.
