Sheila Jackson Lee Gets Another Shellacking

sjl030211.jpg
Sheila Jackson Lee is no Undercover Boss
In a story that will surprise virtually no one in Houston, the Daily Caller has a harsh, lengthy profile of Sheila Jackson Lee as a boss. The bottom line: She's not a good one.

Many of the tales of staffers being screamed at, made to wait for hours, scramble on the slightest whim of the congresswoman, were reported 14 years ago in a Houston Press feature.

Apparently things haven't changed much since.

The Caller's piece, which labels Lee as one of the "Congressional Bosses From Hell," offers the kinds of tales Lee haters love to revel in. And there are plenty of them (both haters and tales).

I can appreciate that the Houston Press reported her verbal abuse long ago, however the intro to this article feels quite mild compared to the words that she used to label her black female staffers. If she were a white man, she would have be slaughtered in the court of public opinion by now. I suppose all we can do is laugh at the ridiculousness, until 2012 and it is time to vote again. This will tickle your funny bone about the Congresswoman... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

I’ve heard the nightmare stories. Plus, every time I have met her at a public event, it’s ended in a story that was funny, frustrating, and a little confusing.

But as someone who used to be in SJL’s district until the lines were moved, I can say I would MUCH rather have her representing me in Congress than Culberson.

We aren’t voting on our boss. We’re voting for who we thinks votes the right way. And SJL votes my way more often than most of the other Reps in Houston.

I mean c’mon: I don’t have to work for her. Thank God.

You mean she votes the right way when she's actually in D.C. instead of showboating and camera-hogging in Houston most of the time?

To all who say that SJL be voted out and that those that live in her district are "too dumb" to do so -- well I urge you to take a look at the 18th Congressional map (http://www.govtrack.us/congres.... It includes some very conservative areas of the city, but was gerrymandered to also include Acres Homes, etc. It is also the same district where there was voter fraud reported in regestering voters in August 2010 as well as in the polling locations during the November election. Many in this district vote the way they are told, and unfortunately, they outnumber those that are knowledgeable

SJL is like Charlie Sheen, a sad situation for those directly involved, but funny as hell to watch from the outside. What is it with Texas and these nutjob politicians? Dems have SJL, the Repubs have Rick Perry. You say you want them voted out, but admit it, you keep voting for them because when they're gone, you're gonna miss all of the hair and camera jokes.

Apples to oranges. But you were able to get your little Rick Perry hair jab in there. Good for you!! *applause*

But you didn't acknowledge my SJL camera jab. Great, now, she's going to have to schedule a press conference to address the issue of not being recognized in your reply. Thanks a lot!

Complain all you want but, if you don't live in her district and don't have the right to vote for her STFU. If you live in her district and don't like her, DON'T VOTE FOR HER, very simple solution.

I'm fortunate enough to not live in her shithole district, but as she is in my Congress and gets to spend my hard-earned money, I have every right to criticize her bigoted, racist ass all day long.

Google "First Amendment to the US Constitution" should you need further explanation.

What an absolute embarassment to the state of Texas. It's simply stunning that such an awful, bitter, and possibly insane person could be re-elected so many times. What a disgusting human being.....

SJL is the personification of the people who elect her.

Yes. That's an insult to all you people who keep voting her in. I lived in her district for 4 years and the woman and her stupid husband (UH big whig) both need to get REAL jobs.
