Lee: Not a prostitute. Not civil.
Yet another staffer remembers requesting a meeting early on in her tenure to ask how best to serve the congresswoman. Jackson Lee’s response: “What? What did you say to me? Who are you, the Congresswoman? You haven’t been elected. You don’t set up meetings with me! I tell you! You know what? You are the most unprofessional person I have ever met in my life.” With that, Jackson Lee hung up the phone.
According to the same staffer, Jackson Lee “would always say, ‘What am I a prostitute? Am I your prostitute? You can’t prostitute me.’”
Capitol Hill is famous for its demanding, insensitive bosses. Yet even by the harsh standards of Congress, Sheila Jackson Lee stands out. She may be the worst boss in Washington. “It’s like being an Iraq War veteran,” says someone who worked for her. Strangers may say, “‘oh I know what you’ve been through.’ No, you really don’t. Because until you’ve experienced it…. People don’t tell the worst of the stories, because they’re really unbelievable.”
…. Only a few on staff fought back. One of Jackson Lee’s drivers became so frustrated with her abuse the person pulled the car over and demand she stop: “She’s screaming and swearing. ‘M.F.’ everything. Finally I slammed on the brakes and told her to get the hell out of my car. I’m like ‘I can’t drive with you like this. Either get out, or you can calm down.’ And she’s like ‘you need to go or get fired.’ I’m like, ‘that’s fine. But I’m either leaving without you or you can calm down,’” the staffer said.
Jackson Lee then threatened to call the police and claim she was being held hostage in the car. But she finally did calm down when the staffer called her bluff, offering to flag down a Capitol Police officer to explain the situation.

She's definitely not a prostitute. Prostitutes aren't that mean-spirited.
TRUMP WEST!! I have been blogging him since January..Trump is the only one with the name, money and BALLS to run. With West ….it is a DREAM TICKET.
Here's from Jan 30th…and he DID COME TO CPAC!
It looks like Herman Cain will run for President on the Republican ticket. He said on PJTV that an official announcement will be made in April.
Kathleen my dear you are going to lose any credibility you have by even mentioning Donald Trump's name let alone suggesting this card board clown as a Presidential possibility
Trump would be like Ross Perot v. 2.0. He is a mercantilist and trade protectionist. Yeah, great for businesses, they get government market protections that consumers pay for. He is a walking political disaster.
Joshua, really? That's awesome.
Come on you guys, if I have to say I was being sarcastic it isn't a joke.
Those who dismiss Trump without considering WHY he is running are really out to lunch. Personally, I believe he is a viable candidate. He is a wealthier Ross Perot who actually wants to win.
Like Perot, he can change the race by threatening to run independently if he doesn't get what he wants from the GOP. Like Perot he is dead on right on his pet issue.
I hope he runs. He will be a force. I don't expect him to win the nomination but the important thing is that he gets the issue of American trade interests and his defense of the US Constitution as not being outdated adopted as a main issue in the GOP platform for 2012.
Should the GOP repeat its 2008 mistake of shoehorning the very candidate who embodies what is wrong with the GOP (Romney/Huckabee/Gingrich), Trump could finally put the GOP out of its misery permanently by running as an independent where many people like me would vote for him. He could very well come in second or even win.
I don't want the GOP to survive if they make that mistake. America will be the better for it because it would mean that a more conservative party replaced thus forcing the Democratic Party to shift to the right for real. We end up with TWO better parties to replace our corrupt one-party system.
that should be "Lee" not "Leigh".

The Daily Caller has an absolutely hilarious article (which I hope will become a series) titled 'Congressional Bosses from Hell' starring Sheila Jackson Leigh.
Jackson Lee is not just a failure at being a boss. She's a failure as a Congresswoman. Her district in Houston looks like the Ruins of Detroit. She has done NOTHING to help the people of her district, but she is a "Al Sharpton" kind of politician who is famous for blaming all the ills of her district on "whitey".
Remember, this is a woman who is basically intellect challanged. She once quipped about "that little flag the astronauts planted on Mars". When she had a townhall meeting last year, a woman was talking to Lee and Lee answered a call on her cell phone and totally blew off the woman from her district. Listening to one of her speeches makes you automatically run for the Excedrin and sleeping pills to put you out of your misery.
But Jackson is going to rachet it up as she now has some competition. The whistle blower from ACORN (Anita something or other) has started the Cripus Atticks Tea Party exclusively in Jackson Lee's district. And the Raging RINOs are going after Jackson Lee. Their sold purpose is to boot Sheila.
I wish them luck. ACORN worked Jackson Lee's district heavily but the King Street Patriots have done a stellar job of providing the Secretary of State's office with a list of phony voters in Jackson Lee's district which are currently being removed from the voter rolls. Also, it would see Texas is poised to pass a "voter I.D." bill pretty soon.
Sheila Jackson Lee is not a prostitute. She's a pig with corn rows and needs to be retired.
Trump is a Democrat, putting an (R) after his name will never change that.
He's a Republican the way Colin Powell or Michael Bloomberg are Republicans, which is to say that he is NOT A REPUBLICAN. Sorry for the scream, but really, can you imagine there'd be any chance of either the Tea Party or Evangelicals getting behind a moderate democrat like Trump as their Republican nominee for President? Not a chance.
Sheila is a Congresswoman representing a district near me. She is so crazy that it has become a running joke. The silver lining to her staying in office is the comedy that she offers. Better than most stand up.
