      he Department of Veterans Affairs has now launched an investigation of scheduling practices in Texas.



      A whistleblower at San Antonio's North Central Federal Clinic said he and other clerks were instructed to manipulate scheduling data so it appeared that there were no wait times.



      A spokeswoman for the Va's office said it's initially focusing on San Antonio where they've received allegations from many different sources.



      VA secretary Eric Shinseki announced Thursday a face-to-face audit of every clinic and hospital in the nation.
