Kryptos7 Challenge 2

The Red River Gang continues to elude us but our inside source reveals that the leaders are fighting amongst themselves causing tension in the group. We believe that members are taking sides and Jackson is out. Our source managed to copy down an encrypted message before it was sent. She knows that the gang has been communicating using the Phillips cipher but she does not know the code word. However, she believes that Jackson is referred to by name in the message. Please help us decipher the code and catch the gang. Our source may be in danger!

Our informant tells us this is likely enciphered using the Phillips cipher with shifted rows and a left to right fill. See here for details: Phillips cipher.
