Skip to comments.Townhall Downfall: Astroturf Doctors? (Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee townhall MD is a fraud)
Posted on 08/13/2009 6:13:15 PM PDT by GVnana
You may have seen yesterdays 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 Presidents health care plan for overhauling a broken system. Meyer said: I dont 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.

"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:
1) Are you the person who attended Jackson Lees 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 Lees husband have anything to do with your going?
I suspect you dont need me to answer the first four
but Ill say for what its worth, I went to get a question answered for myself and two other people close to me who are doctors. Too bad she didnt answer it. I also went to lend support to the reform effort. Its easier to be against something especially since anger is such a great motivator."
"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 Lees district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.
I dont 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."
Haven’t you heard? the video was doctored ....that woman is arrogant and stupid.
IMHO, these two miserable SOB’s should be put in jail for fraud!!!!!!!!!!
DNC Death Panel: "The "doctor" will kill you now."
Lotsa similarly qualified medical staff waiting to practise under the new healthcare bill.
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?
I forgot about Heath in the nurses outfit. That is a great still that should be used A LOT!
Maybe this is the type of doctor ObamaCare will bring after they drive off all our current ones.
College Posers Gone Wild!
.....sign up for it youself.
I was just looking online for more info on impersonating a physician in Texas. Hope she gets a fine at least. Someone go for it - is there a texas ping list?
they are so arrogant, they don’t even care when they are caught.
i wish the msm would point this out. i wonder if we will here a montage on Rush of the msm calling this woman a “plant”, manufactured support, etc. ?
Just when I think I’ve seen it all from these ‘tards, they go and surprise me again.
did a google on this chick for news articles, couldn’t find any msm articles on her lie. only found a result for FR, and a couple of blogs.
Damn. She’s even still wearing the same top!
Fake but accurate.
Instant Affirmative Action results.
If Bill Cosby can play a doctor why not she?
I went to a boxing match last night and things got so out of control, a health care townhall meeting broke out.

Who is the red-circled woman?
Probably photo shopped. sarc
And the MSM ABCNNBCBS goes on its merry way .... “More lies from the right-wing bussed-in racist extremists. Nothing to see here folks, just moveon.org”

He had such a carreer until they talked him into playing a degenerate.
Lying DNC btt
The moonbat precinct captain Maria Isabel posted her thoughts on the Sheila Jackson Lee TH yesterday. It’s laughable and can be found
“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!
The big question is what and when did SJL know it.
Likely a DNC handler.
I suspect you dont need me to answer the first four but Ill say for what its worth, I went to get a question answered for myself and two other people close to me who are doctors. Too bad she didnt answer it. I also went to lend support to the reform effort. Its easier to be against something especially since anger is such a great motivator.
Also, I have never met the Congresslady or her husbandits 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 Im sure I lack your creativity and passion, I have possessed some spontaneity from time to time.
If I understand whats going on here, youre not a doctor, but you play one at town hall meetings. Is that about it?
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 meetingeven though I was a delegate. If I go to another one, which I seriously doubt because my husband is already extremely annoyed, then maybe Ill play a plumber.
Oh my gosh...poor Greta has her on and cannot get a word in edgewise. I was shouting—cut her mic!
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.
627,000 Hits on Google. This is going to be too big to keep quiet!
What a b*tch.
Always Right, that is brilliant!!!!
Well it’s up to US to make sure that EVERYONE knows about this phony doctor plant ..This is unreal. We need to send this story to everyone on talk radio.
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.
