Death and corruption at the Veterans Administration

But Jenkins says that explanation is unacceptable. Fillingim wasn’t charged because his blood alcohol level was registered at .03, below the legal limit, but the test occurred about six hours after the incident, and credit card receipts showed Fillingim and another individual shared in more than ten drinks at the bar.

Jenkins said that though Fillingim wasn’t charged, he admitted to numerous violations of the professional codes of the VA. Plus, he added, Johnson was ultimately exonerated.

The way Fillingim and Johnson were treated is indicative of a culture which holds management and non-management employees within the VA to different standards, Jenkins told TheDC.
