James Dunn Cheif of Staff MI Dept Vet Affairs Goes to GR Vets Home, and does what?!

WOW,, I wish I was there for this one.. but I am hearing rumors from several sources on this..

We know for a fact that James Dunn, the Chief of Staff of Michigan Department of Veterans Affairs, did in fact, go to the Grand Rapids Veterans Home to talk to veterans.. After that things get a little fuzzy..

One report says he was there to meet specifically with 6 of the Dorm unit guys to answer questions that were already submitted to him.. 
  That seems kind of odd to me. Why would he drive all the way from Lansing just to talk to 6 people?

The OTHER report is that a group of veterans waited for him in the APR Room at the home, and when he arrived, and found out there were about 100 vets wanting to talk to him, he decided not to, and to only address the vets in the Dorm unit.
      What happened here? Who did what to who?

There is also a rumor going around that a petition has been started to get Jim Dunn removed from his job.

It has also been reported that someone was going up and down the hallways saying the meeting was "illegal"..  What the hell is an "illegal meeting"?    The vets at the home have a right to assemble and have any kind of meeting or gathering that they want to have. With or without staff members present.
This is a common right secured by our nations Charter, and our State's Charter. And one of the rights the home trys to violate every time it can.

Many think that is why Congressperson Winnie Brinks was told to leave the property - because she had a meeting with a member without staff approval or their presence at the meeting.

Either way, one thing is for sure:

It has been my experience that people see what they want to see, hear what they want to hear, and believe what they want to believe, no matter what REALLY happens.
