Skip to comments.Reports: Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee Broke Laws at Polling Place, Harassed Poll Watchers
Posted on 10/22/2010 10:19:13 AM PDT by kristinn
There are two reports that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) violated electioneering laws inside a polling place and harassed poll watchers at the Acres Home Multiservice Community Center on October 18th.
Liberty Pundits has two eyewitness anonymous sources, a poll watcher and an election clerk, who describe Rep. Jackson Lee speaking with and shaking hands of voters inside a polling place located in the same building as her district office and getting in the faces of poll watchers
KPRC 950 host Michael Berry (@28:45) interviewed Houston poll watcher Catherine Engelbrecht of King Street Patriots/True The Vote on October 19th about what was relayed to her by poll watcher Marcia Ferguson.
Engelbrecht said that the poll watcher complained to the election judge that Jackson Lee was violating the law by campaigning inside the polling place by shaking hands with voters waiting in line to vote.
Engelbrecht did not know the whole story of what happened other than the poll watcher complaining.
Liberty Pundits had a fuller account from their sources who asked for anonymity for their safety:
So the source, a poll watcher, went into the room housing the voting booths and there stood Congresswoman Lee shaking hands with voters and greeting othersclearly electioneering. The poll watcher then went to one of the clerks and asked the presiding judge to take care of it.
While this occurred, the poll watcher heard Lee loudly say to the crowd in the voting area,Ive heard a lot of complaints about voter intimidation by poll watchers. I am not going to allow voter intimidation.
The poll watcher started writing the incident down.
Lee then went to the poll watcher and asked,Whats your name? Who do you represent?
A poll watcher is not allowed to speak in the polling area, so directed Congresswoman Lee to the presiding judge. The poll watcher said that Congresswoman Lee indicated that she wanted names to report to the Department of Justice for voter intimidation.
The presiding judge asked Congresswoman Lee to leave.
... This account is backed up by another worker there, an election clerk, who also wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution. He relayed concern for his safety.
The election clerk described the poll watchers as timid. He said that they stayed out of the way, were quiet and and did not talk to any voters.
He confirms that Congresswoman Lee was, in fact, back near the voting booths and talking to the presiding judge but he did not overhear her conversation but saw her from a distance. He estimated that Sheila Jackson Lee was within 10 feet of the voting machines but was not herself voting. He also witnessed Congresswoman Lee talking to the poll watcher but again, could not hear the contents of the conversation.
The clerk corroborated the poll watchers report that there were consistent election law violations in the polling places.
There have been no reports in the media about this reported egregious violation of the law by by a U.S. Congresswoman.

This is the same woman whom demanded to buy a silencer at a gunshow, and in front of an ATF agent, was not arrested for the violation of “conspiracy to violate the National Firearms Act of 1934”.
She’s black. So the law doesn’t apply.
The Presidents wife did with on backlash so why not.
I'd loved to have answered, "What's that weird thing on your head? How many flags are there on Mars?"
sounds like these poll watchers are going to need video recording cell phones...
Send all info to Drudge, Breitbart, Rush, Hannity, Malkin, to expose; 24/7. Exposure is all the RATs fear.
Doucment everything; in writing and video tape.
Exactly. Neither this racist not Michelle Obama violated any laws. The laws don't apply to blacks at a polling place, so they can't be violated. just ask Attorney General Holder and anyone who tried to vote at a New Black Panthers patrolled polling place in 2008.
How many flags are there on Mars?”
Right. And she’s smarter than those who continue to vote for her.
when we trained in Ohio for 2008...
we were told the cellphones pictures and video were not welcome in the polling station...
they were intimidating to the voters.
TIMID poll watchers? Little old ladies? Where are the tough looking Marine types?
Gawd, don’t we have anyone with guts anymore?
Queen Shiela alert
Not only is she black, but she’s also a good Democrat. The laws are invoked only if “evil” Republicans are in violation or suspected of something. Good Democrats, since they are good Democrats, never ever violate laws or ethical standards. (sarcasm)
Not welcome? But was it illegal?
Meanwhile a sign asking people not to cheat is a bad thing?
Mooshele and Moosheila team up.
I am so utterly embarrassed that Sheila Jackson Lee is from Texas. I am filled with shame each time this dolt opens her mouth and stupid falls out or she pulls a stunt that would earn someone with less melanin a quick trip to the local jail.
Truly sad that her constituents continue to vote for her year after year.
Maybe this was the hope and change Oboma campaigned about. So far, he's destroyed the economy, created a record deficit, produced a record number of homeless, set a new food stamp record, lost millions of jobs, so why not destroy the elections, too? He might as well go for it all. His voters would be eternally grateful if he made everyone in the country as miserable and as self loathing as they are.
Lol, I know of at least one...
Recently Thunder Thighs was electioneering and was given a pass because she ‘didn’t know the law’ (plus she was black).
Now Lee is taking the liberty to engage in electioneering. What excuse will be given to let her go? Beside the fact she’s black?
Things like this (on top of the obvious wrongdoing) make people despise the Ruling Class even more.
So she is above the law. Especially with the current Just-us Dept.
There is nothing to see here so just move on.
Queen Shiela alert
Isn’t that a democrat resume enhancer?
It seems clear that the Democrats are going to use fake “voter intimidation” charges - to intimidate others. With the crap Holder Justice Department, who knows what the outcome will be.
From the Ministry of Love bookmark.
“......more equal than others.”
Can’t have voice or picture recording devices inside the polling area in Texas.
If she would only get in my face about anything!
I could show her what 25 years mixed martial arts training can do to a commie liberal idiot.
Laws don’t apply to liberal blacks. Next story, please.
Sheila blowing off town hall participants.
1. She is black, thereby has blanket pardon of all wrongdoing.
2. If she is in violation, always refer to Rule #1.
Another racist rabelrouser looking for attention.
Ain't it the truth! Thats exactly how people like Jackson- Lee, Conyers, Rangel and Waters get elected.
It's really scary that there are so many people running around with barely the intellegence to sustain breathing, going to the mailbox to pick up a check, and voting democrat functionality.
It would’ve been fun telling Miss Squeala to piss off.
Taht’s OK, she can do that. She’s black.
That’s OK, she can do that. She’s black.
A personal account of the Texas Congress person who is a disgrace to her District, Texas and America:
I once rode on the same plane from Reagan International to Houston Intercontinental with the poor excuse for a Congress person. She, of course, had a Business/First Class ticket, but that wasn’t good enough - she asked the person sitting on the aisle in the front row if she could sit there (I don’t know what she would have done if he had refused). Her aide had an economy seat, but spent most of her time in the First Class cabin attending to the queen’s every whim. And, the way she talked to and treated the obviously lower class, less intelligent flight attendants was embarrassing. There are reports of her verbal abuse of aides, misuse of their services, and their high turnover rate, of which I have no personal knowledge. But, after seeing her in action, I have no doubt of their veracity.
Unfortunately, the fact that she continues to be re-elected doesn’t say much for her supporters. She is a disgrace to her race, Texas, and America.
It’s really scary that there are so many people running around with barely the intellegence to sustain breathing, going to the mailbox to pick up a check, and voting democrat functionality.
It’s damned scary and disgusting. They are too stupid to know they’re bing screwed and enslaved.
And DC Bryan, she should be in jail now on NFA "conspiracy" charges, instead of the good men the Feds sent to prison or to their grave over the accursed NFA34.
I just got off the phone with her office in Houston, and they confirmed that she was at that location on Monday. So if she later denies being there, we’ve got confirmation. I also tipped the local NBC station, and will do so with the other local stations. We’ll see if this can at least get some local play.
Use your phone or get creative and invest in something like this:
Catch these idjits breaking the law then annonmously load it to the internet and watch the fun!
and doesn't that rankle your @$$.
Thanks. Good work!
This woman’s arrogance is despicable. She is a poster child for what can go wrong in a democracy/Republic.
