Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is a tough boss. Even she will tell you that.
After all, one former staff member famously told the conservative web site The Daily Caller that the Democratic congressman once declared, Im a queen, and I demand to be treated like one.
A 2011 Texas on the Potomac investigation revealed that Jackson Lee went through more staff more quickly than any other member of the Texas congressional delegation. Now, a new study by the Washington Times found that the veteran Texas Democrat had the highest turnover rate for all of Congress over the past decade.
An average of 53 percent more than half of Jackson Lees staff leave her office every year.

If they would just put her and Valerie Jarrett together in a small locked room, they could charge on pay-per-view
the battle of the beyotches
If I read this poorly written article properly, it appears that the top three worst bosses are females.
This cow is the one who needs to be turned over - but I guess with all the Katrina welfare chasers living in Houston now that’ll never happen.
As long as she is in congress Hank Johnson will always be the second stupidest congressman.
I can attest to this first hand.
I was coming through Reagan Airport on a business trip, and appartently Queen Sheila had been in First Class on the same flight.
I was waiting for my bags, and she came prancing in with her lackey in tow. She was jappering in his here the entire time, and he was dutifully writing every word he said.
Guy standing next to me said she didn’t shut up the entire flight anf the poor guy with her took notes the whole time. Said she complained to the stewardess (refuse to see attendant) about every single thing too. Seat was uncomfortable, drink wasn’t cold enough, food didn’t taste good - blah blah blah.
When the bags started to come out she literally shoved her assistant toward the front and basically yelled out him, “get my damn bags I have places to be!”
jappering in his here????? Have to love adaptive spelling — JABBERING IN HIS EAR!
You just wait and see, some day Guam will tip over and Johnson will be proven right.
What a witch!
Arrogant and stupid - the perfect storm. At least Charlie Gonzalez is a nice guy, even if I disagreed completely with his politics while he was in Congress.
Maybe “HE” is a queen?
I am also glad the ‘author’(?) pointed out 53% is over half.
I probably would have spent the day figuring that out.
Is the ref to the ‘former staffer’ crying to a Republican web site significant in ANY way other than to ‘blame Bush’ since he is also from Texas?
Someone should write a book of all the stupid things these two idiots have said! I feel sorry for anyone who has to work for them and attempt to show respect to them. Both are so stupid it has to hurt!
It was said about Moquetezuma, "You could not touch him, you could not look at him, you could not turn your back on him." So which posture or body position was left to you when he came by? Bowing low.
jappering in his here????? Have to love adaptive spelling JABBERING IN HIS EAR!
Inglish is a evolving language. You proly new that to.
Here’s an oldie but a goodie -
I don’t know we have Corrine Brown in the running too.
The only thing surprising here is that the barnacle printed this...
Well, the article does point out that Chuck Hagel wears Prada.
Michelle Bachman has the highest turnover of any Republican.
Some of her Black Ku Klux Klan Racist comments she made after George Zimmerman was attacked by Trayvon Martin.....leaves me no doubt that She’s A Jackass Lee would be a nasty boss
It’s in her DNA. ‘nuff said.
Here are the top ten Texas offices for staff turnover and the annual turnover rate, according to the Times data:
1. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, 53 percent (national rank: 1)
2. Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, 42 percent (5)
3. Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas, 36 percent (17)
4. Rep. Ted Poe, R-Humble, 35 percent (19)
5. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Dallas, 32 percent (26)
6. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Lubbock, 32 percent (28)
7. Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth, 31 percent (36)
8. Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, 31 percent (37)
9. Former Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Dallas, 31 percent (38)
10. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Austin, 30 percent (45)
Here are the worst boss’ in Congress. They also have the highest turnover rates. I am surprised to see Michele Bachmann on the list but sometimes being tough is ok. It means that Michele expects her staff to grow and thrive not only at this job but also in life itself. Go Michele! This woman can do no wrong in my book!!!!!
That is pretty high. Especially since most of her employees are relatives.
