RONNY’S FAILED CAREER PLAN
1. MILITARY PROMOTION
Senate Republicans refused to take up the matter of his promotion due to the disturbing allegations below.[i]
That was after the Senate refused to do so years earlier.
2. CABINET APPOINTMENT
Senate Republicans rejected Jackson’s cabinet nomination after 23 of Jackson’s own military colleagues came forward with disturbing allegations:
Ronny was regularly drunk on the job including when he was on-call and was even passed out drunk in his hotel room when he was needed. Jackson even drunkenly wrecked a government vehicle.[i]
Ronny created a hostile, abusive work environment.[ii] Jackson’s colleagues described him as:
Ronny loosely handed out prescription pain medications like candy, including to himself. [i]
A nurse noted that Jackson wrote himself scripts. When caught, he had someone else (his PA) do it.
Physicians felt uncomfortable and refused to be a part of the loose dispensing of drugs to current and former WH staff...
Jackson was described as "the most unethical person I have ever worked with" and viewed as someone who "worked his way up on the backs of others" and "was a suck-up to those above him and abusive to those below him"
Additionally, Vice President Pence was reportedly upset with Ronny after he violated federal privacy protections by disclosing Mrs. Pence medical condition.[ii] After all of these allegations, the President himself acknowledged that Jackson might not have been qualified to lead the VA.[iii]
As a result of information coming forward from Jackson’s nomination to lead the VA, the Defense Department Office of Inspector General confirmed on June 4, 2018 that it had initiated an investigation into any wrongdoing by Jackson. As of February 2020, as far as what is publicly known, this investigation remains ongoing.[viii]
3. RUN FOR OFFICE SOMEWHERE
On December 13, 2019, Jackson moved into our district and changed his voter registration to Amarillo.[i]
