In Houston she is known as the “funeral Lady” as she makes her staff look through the obituaries to find someone important that has passed away. She will then travel to their funeral and make an attempt to say “something”, that is if the family members allow her to.
Note: More family members than not have not only told her NO, but expressed how disgusted they were with her tactics!!!!!
Houstonians are still waiting on her to explain how she paid for her personal trip to LA to provide Mochael Jackson’s family with something from Congress that no one in Congress vote on or approved.
Now ex-staffer’s are coming forward telling just exactly how nasty she is. One driver explains how she threatened to lie to the cops, telling them she was being held hostage if the driver did not do what she wanted.
- In 2003, Lee complained that the names of hurricanes were too “lily white” (how can a name be white? Is Lee stereotyping? Surely not…), and demanded that more ‘black’ names be used.
- On a visit to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Lee, a member of the House Science Committee’s space subcommittee, asked if the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag Neil Armstrong planted there in 1969!
- Earlier this year, Lee attempted to explain away Nancy Pelosi’s referral to the United States as an occupying force in Iraq:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s use of the term “occupying force” to describe the U.S. military presence in Iraq was not a “harsh term,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Tex.), who attempted to redefine the terminology.”I believe that we can, if you will, change “occupying’s” definition to being collaborators — collaborators with the Iraqi people and moving them toward their own self-government,” Jackson Lee told Cybercast News Service on Wednesday night at the U.S. Capitol following President Bush’s State of the Union address.
- When Trent Lott uttered his ill-advised, but relatively mild, endorsement of Strom Thurmond, Lee reacted hysterically: it was a “…shocking, if you will piercing, voice through the fabric of black America”.
