Alphonso Jackson’s Firing Offense

Here’s the weird thing. Jackson says he made up the story about denying a contract to someone because that someone was a critic of the president. If he made it up, then he committed no firing offense. Unless, of course, being an unbelievable bozo is a firing offense. I’ve met Jackson, and he’s a fun companion at a dinner table, but if he did make up this story, I can’t think of a comparably dumb public statement in recent Washington history.
