 Why did Ronny Jackson move here to run for office? 

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:

“the most unethical person I have ever worked with”

"abusive"

100% percent bad temper”

 “the worst officer I have ever served with”

As Jackson gained power he became “intolerable.”

“belittling”

 “vindictive”

“flat-out unethical”

“explosive”

“This should have been the highlight of my military career but it was my worst assignment.”

-White House Medical Unit Nurse

 “I have no faith in government that someone like Jackson could end up at VA.”

 -Jackson’s own physician colleague

 “dishonest”

“the worst leader I’ve ever worked for.”

  • 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]

Our Congressional District is Ronny Jackson’s Back-Up Plan.

 

We Deserve Better.

 

We Deserve One of Our Own Fighting for Our Values.

​Ronny Jackson worked for Barack Obama and has rave reviews from all his liberal Democrat staffers including Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, and David Axelrod. They all love him. He shares their values or he sucked up to all of them. Also, he didn’t vote for Trump in 2016. Actions speak louder than words. And since we’re talking about actions - the biggest action he’s taken in this race is moving down here only to run for office. 

“Ronny’s positive impact cannot be overstated. He is a tremendous asset to the entire White House team.” - Barack Obama

[i] In early 2019, the President recommended Jackson be promoted to “Rear Admiral Upper Half (2-star)”. Trump’s nomination went to the Senate Armed Services Committee on January 15, 2019. On January 3, 2020 the Committee returned the nomination to the President, refusing to take up the matter – an effective rejection of the nomination.

[ii] When “on duty” or “holding the medical bag”, Jackson was required to be on call at a moment’s notice in the event of a health issue with the President. On several occasions, Jackson would reach for “the bag” while intoxicated to show he was in charge. On at least one occasion, Dr. Jackson could not be reached when needed because he was passed out drunk in his hotel room. At a Secret Service going away party, Jackson got drunk and wrecked a government vehicle. https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4447064/2018-04-25-SVAC-Summary-of-Allegations.pdf

 

 

[iii] Jackson withdrew his nomination on April 26, 2018, after numerous issues arose in the confirmation vetting process. Various charges included overprescribing pain medication to himself and others, the creation of a “hostile working environment”, and being drunk on the job. A link to the committee report from the confirmation process:

[iv] Individuals cited the nickname “Candyman” used by White House staff because Jackson would provide whatever prescriptions they sought without paperwork. Jackson displayed a pattern of handing out Ambien (to sleep) and Provigil (to wake up) without triaging patient history (no intakes, no questionnaires) on Air Force One. These are controlled substances that require tracking. Missing Percocet (used for pain) tabs once threw the White House Medical Unit into a panic. It turned out Jackson had provided a large supply to a White House Military Office (WHMO) staffer. Jackson also had private stocks of controlled substances. A nurse noted that Jackson wrote himself scripts. When caught, he had someone else (his PA) do it.

[v] Additionally, there is a report that that VP Mike Pence was upset with Jackson and might have been the final nail in Jackson’s nomination for VA Secretary. Reportedly, Karen Pence’s doctor claimed that Jackson had violated federal privacy protections by briefing White House staff and disclosing details of her condition to other medical providers. https://www.pressherald.com/2018/05/01/pences-doctor-accused-ronny-jackson-of-misconduct-while-treating-second-lady/

Jackson retired from the Navy on December 1, 2019. His Texas voter registration was filed on December 13, 2019, around the time he filed for office. Before December of 2019, Jackson had never lived in the 13th Congressional District.
