Townhall Downfall: Astroturf Doctors? (Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee townhall MD is a fraud)
The Heritage Foundation ^ | 8/13/2009

Posted on 08/13/2009 6:13:15 PM PDT by GVnana

You may have seen yesterday’s video of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) speaking on her cell phone while a cancer survivor spoke to her about health care reform. Well now comes news that the pro-Obamacare voices in the crowd were not entirely legitimate.

A primary care physician identified as Dr. Roxana Meyer stood up and praised the President’s health care plan for overhauling a broken system. Meyer said: “I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic.” The Congresswoman asked the crowd to give her a round of applause for being a doctor, hugged her and then asked “How long have you been practicing?” to which “Dr.” Meyer answered “Four years,” which was followed by more applause and a gushing grin on the face of “Dr.” Meyer. The problem? Roxana Meyer is not a doctor, but rather an Obama campaign delegate.

Patterico Busts TX Grad Student/Obama Delegate Posing As Doctor; Chron Doesn't Credit, Still Disclosure-Challenged

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/tom-blumer/2009/08/13/patterico-busts-grad-student-obama-delegate-posing-doctor-chron-doesnt-c

"So Patterico went to the source, e-mailing the LinkedIn Ms. Mayer. Hilarity ensued. By the time the exchange ended, "poor" Ms. Mayer was in full moonbat mode:

(Patterico)

1) Are you the person who attended Jackson Lee’s town hall meeting?
2) Are you a doctor?
3) If not, why did you claim to be one?
4) Were you a Texas delegate for Obama?
5) Why did you go to the town hall meeting?
6) Who encouraged you to go?
7) Did Sheila Jackson Lee’s husband have anything to do with your going?

(Mayer)

I suspect you don’t need me to answer the first four…but I’ll say for what it’s worth, I went to get a question answered for myself and two other people close to me who are doctors. Too bad she didn’t answer it. I also went to lend support to the reform effort. It’s easier to be against something especially since anger is such a great motivator."

Obama to use FAKE "Doctors" in DNC Plan to Exterminate the Elderly
and Deny Them All Independent Access to Real Doctors and Real Treatment.

<>


"Patterico Busts TX Grad Student/Obama Delegate Posing As Doctor; Chron Doesn't Credit, Still Disclosure-Challenged
Ms. Mayer, who claimed to be a doctor when she spoke at a town hall meeting held by Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
... At first, the Houston Chronicle took Mayer's word that she is a doctor, failed to investigate her bona fides"


"Obama camp plants fake doc, Che fan at Jackson Lee forum
One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee’s district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.
“I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic,” she said.
In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila:
.... Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.
... her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.
But she is an Obama campaign volunteer."

In most states, it is a CRIME to claim to be a practicing physician.

Any TX Freepers want to file a complaint with state licensure board?

He had such a carreer until they talked him into playing a degenerate.

The moonbat precinct captain Maria Isabel posted her thoughts on the Sheila Jackson Lee TH yesterday. It’s laughable and can be found

here:http://my.barackobama.com/page/community/blog/mariaisabel

“SJL was very clear and to the point on issues. She was kind and listen to the speakers and promised to take back to Congress our views and concerns...She kept control of the meeting beautifully!”

Lol! Yeah. In between her cell phone calls!

Patterico Busts TX Grad Student/Obama Delegate Posing As Doctor; Chron Doesn't Credit, Still Disclosure-Challenged

(Mayer)

I suspect you don’t need me to answer the first four…but I’ll say for what it’s worth, I went to get a question answered for myself and two other people close to me who are doctors. Too bad she didn’t answer it. I also went to lend support to the reform effort. It’s easier to be against something especially since anger is such a great motivator.

Also, I have never met the Congresslady or her husband–it’s a big school. I do think this is all very funny because I just assume that if my going had been part of a conspiracy, it would have been more seemlessly executed.

While I’m sure I lack your creativity and passion, I have possessed some spontaneity from time to time.

(Patterico)

If I understand what’s going on here, you’re not a doctor, but you play one at town hall meetings. Is that about it?

(Mayer)

Do you mean play a doctor like you play a journalist? Then the answer is no. But who knows, that was only my first town hall meeting–even though I was a delegate. If I go to another one, which I seriously doubt because my husband is already extremely annoyed, then maybe I’ll play a plumber.

Me too, but I had to turn off the volume. SJL is the most obnoxious, arrogant, mindless, twit in congress.

Of course, she and a certain 'doctor' may have other issues. Thus the nonstop verbal assault on Greta.

ACTION RESPONSE Houston Chronicle readerrep@chron.com
Tel 713-362-6303. Or go to chron.com

Motor-mouth Sheila Jackson Lee' s intellectually facile explanation of her rude unconscionable behavior at a townhall---answering a cell phone while a cancer survivor was speaking----raises several questions. How did this rude, obnoxious woman ever get elected? Voter fraud comes to mind.

To add insult to injury she (1) first lied about her actions, (2) claimed the tape was "doctored," then, (3) told news organs she was talking to a healthcare hotline. I urge the Houston Chronicle to subpoena Lee's cell phne records to determine who exactly she was fielding phone calls from.

Lee obviously believes herself to be "The Anointed One." Lee clearly owns an imperious sense of entitlement, and expects Americans to kneel in obeisance at her feet. She had better disabuse herself of the notion that she, and she alone, gets to decide what happens to Americans' healthcare. Aint gonna happen.

Finally, I don't know where this woman came from, but Texas voters are going to send her back there ASAP.
