Sheila Jackson Lee Tells CNN that Video of Her Using Cell Phone "May Have Been Doctored" - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | August 13, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 08/13/2009 2:26:03 PM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of CNN's Rick Sanchez getting into a heated back and forth exchange with Democrat Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee over the fact she talked on her cell phone at a Town Hall Meeting while a woman was trying to ask her a question.

NOTE: Video of Lee using Cell Phone at Town Hall included

Sanchez asked her "What were you thinking?" Lee started rambling about everything except what he asked her about! Sanchez then interrupted Lee and said, Congresswoman, you are not answering my question."

Lee actually said the video of her talking on the cell phone "may have been doctored." When Sanchez later tried to call her on that, she would not comment further on the video.

Sanchez finally just asked why she would not simply apologize for being "disrespectful."

"Because it was not disrespectful," said Lee. . . . (Watch Video)

"Because it was not disrespectful," said Lee. . . .

Of course not; when the speaker is of a different persuasion...

There’s always an excuse for them.

Oh, Sanchez, goes to SUCH lengths to say that SOME have said it MIGHT APPEAR to be disrespectful.

What a suck-up.

How can someone doctor her looking at, listening to, and talking on that cell phone. No way. The woman is tap-dancing around the question because she’s guilty of being super rude.

How stupid does this woman think people are? Geez!

I sincerely hope that the voters in her district give her the HEAVE-HO next time she’s up for reelection! They can then let her talk about it not being discrespectful. What a jerk.

She sounds very much like my kids when they were younger. If they didn’t want people to believe they had done something wrong, even if the people saw it and even if it’s on tape, just deny the whole thing. I’ve seen gang bangers and pot heads do the same thing when they are before the judge or when they get arrested, just deny everything and the little POSes think that that will make everything better.

It appears Ms. Lee still believes that crap. When is she going to grow up and accept responsibilities for her stupidity?

“How stupid does this woman think people are? Geez!”

The “people” elected Obama...
She has plenty of proof of just how stupid they are. And she can call on the resouces of the Federal Government now to SILENCE anyone that makes her look bad.

In the 30’s, they called this FASCISM. But I’m a RACIST if I say that now, right?

This juvenile response I would expect from a 3rd grader, with excuses in this order:

1) I didn’t do it.
2) Someone lied by doctoring the video.
3) That’s not me on the phone, it someone who looks like me.
4) OK, I was talking to the President. I’ve been telling him what to do for the last 6 months.

The woman who was trying to ask a question when Sheila Jackson Lee was on the phone has been interviewed on TV. She said there were a couple of other questioners that Jackson Lee did the same thing to.

Congresswoman Sheila is a lying BSr. I saw the woman who was so rudely interrupted with Congresswoman Sheila's answering a call on her cell phone. Congresswoman Sheila not only interrupted questioning by this citizen at her town meeting, but she also interrupted two others. Not once did Congresswoman Sheila offer an apology for her rude conduct. This information was conveyed to Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday, August 12, ‘09. The woman interrupted by Congresswoman Sheila was cancer survivor Tracy Miller.

Greta Van Susteren promised she would put a call in to Congresswoman Sheila to offer her show as a way to give an apology for her conduct. It looks as if Congresswoman Sheila is trying to BS her way out of it.

According to the cancer survivor, Jackson Lee did this to at least two other people and it appeared she was communicating with her staff who were telling what other politicians or notable personages were in the room. Then Jackson Lee would give a “shout out” to that person.

NJ Teacher To Pay $22K Fine For Phone Call [during class]
WCBS-TV ^ | Aug 13, 2009

Asbury Park Teacher To Pay Large Fine For 4-Minute Call Made During Class

Her lawyer says a New Jersey teacher won't appeal a $22,000 fine for making a four-minute personal call in class.

Attorney Stephen Hunter says Desley Getty acknowledges she made a mistake.

The 120-day salary forfeiture will be based on calendar days and will be deducted from a base salary of about $70,000. A previous story had estimated the penalty at as much as $50,000 based on 120 work days.

Court records show the Asbury Park High School performing arts teacher was covering for another teacher in 2008 when she called suspended superintendent Antonio Lewis.

A student recorded two students dancing while Getty was on the phone and posted it on YouTube.

Getty questioned students the next day after she had learned about the video.

The district prohibits teachers from making personal calls while performing assigned duties.

Asbury Park High School is a comprehensive, four-year community public high school headquartered in Asbury Park, New Jersey. It serves prekindergarten through twelfth grade.
