On Capitol Hill, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is on the hot seat Thursday.

The former Kauai resident is appearing before a Senate committee to address allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at a Phoenix veterans hospital.

Shinseki says if reports of treatment delays, secret waiting lists and preventable deaths at a Phoenix veterans hospital are true, they are “completely unacceptable” to everyone.

Shinseki is testifying about allegations that the hospital maintained a secret waiting list to hide lengthy delays for sick veterans.
