The VA’s Candy Man

An official confirmed that the state Department of Safety and Professional Services is investigating David Houlihan, chief of staff at the troubled Tomah facility.

Houlihan had been given the nickname "Candy Man" by some vets for his supposedly easy and widespread distribution of painkillers. He wrote at least some of the prescriptions for a 35-year-old Marine Corps vet who died at the medical center in August.

A nurse and pharmacist who worked with Houlihan are also under investigation by the state.
