    Thursday at a field hearing in Texas pertaining to the surge of unaccompanied minors at the U.S.-Mexico border, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) balked at the suggestion of Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul (R-TX) that the children filling the border facilities need to be detained and deported by holding up a bag of lollipops to demonstrate her view that compassion not deportation is in order. Referring to the illegal immigrant minors as "homeless children," Jackson Lee said, "I took lollipops along with my colleagues into the detention center where children were. I wasn't armed. I wasn't fearful for my...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, had an "oops" moment on the House floor, as seen in C-Span video. The Houston representative declared the U.S. Constitution was some 400 years old. Unfortunately, that's incorrect. The Constitution was created in 1787 and ratified nearly a year later. Four hundred years ago, Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America, was founded.

The Texas Democrat says the recent shooting rampage at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin — just the latest in a string of attacks against members of the group since 9/11 — is indication that more needs to be done to shield Sikhs from violence.

She's been ranked the "meanest" member of the U.S. House by Washingtonian Magazine. A Daily Caller exposé earlier this year suggested she's the worst boss in Washington.

  • Sheila Jackson-Lee gets rescued by Houston Police at fundraiser

Al was pretty cool & quite friendly as he strolled into the restaurant entrance….alone. He stayed until 6:45 pm and strolled past us…alone… heading east on Dallas towards Louisiana. Sheila’s handlers however, (especially the woman in the yellow skirt suit) looked at us with absolute disgust and disdain. By my estimate 40-50 people turned out to contribute money to a 16 YEAR Congressional incumbents’ re-election campaign less than one week before early voting begins in Houston. Pathetic if you ask me.

    The Houston political landscape has changed significantly since Sheila Jackson Lee last had a serious race for Congress — her first, in fact, back in 1994. The district looks different: Its 228 square miles, mostly in the center of Houston, were reshaped in 2003 at the behest of Texas Republicans. Its voters are different: African-Americans account for 40 percent of the eight-term Democrat's estimated 652,000 constituents now, compared with 51 percent 16 years ago. Hispanics have doubled their share of the population to 36 percent. And the political power centers have shifted from the inner city churches to the...

She acknowledged the rarity in an interview with The Hill, but said she agrees that the Newsweek magazine cover with a photograph of Palin in running shorts is sexist.

"What is the necessity of highlighting that picture among the thousands that have been taken of her?"

    Six Democratic members of Congress enjoyed a Caribbean junket sponsored by Citigroup after Congress had approved the $700 billion bailout of financial services firms in October. The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group, has asked Neil Barofsky, the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, for a formal review of the Citigroup’s sponsorship of the trip by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel and five others. The NLPC says the trip violated House rules. The purported purpose of the Nov. 6-9 junket was to attend the Caribbean Multi-Cultural Business Conference on the island of...

    Dubious “doctors” keep turning up at congressional town hall meetings to support a government health care takeover plan that sane medical professionals are revolting against in force. Blogger Patterico smoked out fake pediatrician Roxana Mayer at a Sheila Jackson-Lee town hall. Now, bloggers have raised questions about a left-wing activist who turned up at Barney Frank’s raucous town hall. She’s Dr. Sheila Leavitt, identified in press reports as a “physician from Newton (MA).” But the folks at AR15.com can’t find anyone licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts under the name “Sheila Leavitt.” Kate at Small Dead Animals does the Googling...

    I was reading the Chron’s piece about Sheila Jackson Lee’s town hall, when something caught my eye: 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: I’m not sure why, but something didn’t smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn’t you know it? Roxana Mayer...

    Funny how the Dems accuse opponents of Obama's Hell Care of being set up or paid when that is exactly what THEY are doing!Remember the Town Hall meeting on health care held by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (DEMOCRAT-TX) where she rudely talked on her cell phone instead of listening to the question of a real constituent? (video here)Well, maybe Ms. Jackson Lee was on her phone asking her staff "where's that fake doctor you planted in here for me to call on." Eventually, she found her. Right there in the front row center: [VIDEO AT SITE] Ms. Jackson Lee embraces...

    Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee is interviewed by Greta Van Susteren and apparently has the same problem she had a few days ago when she exhibited what Greta called "profoundly rude" behavior, answering a cell phone while a constituent asks her a question. "Here's the problem... Let me explain something to you... One of the problems is you're not listening, and that was sort of the criticism that you weren't listening, you're on the phone..." In the end, the Congresswoman says, "I can certainly understand if offense was taken," and if she met the constituent she ignored, Tracy Miller, she would say,...

    U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee on Thursday distanced herself from a University of Houston graduate student and Texas Obama delegate who falsely identified herself as a pediatric physician at the congresswoman's health care reform town hall meeting this week. “I've never met her,” Jackson Lee said as she prepared to take questions from doctors and other health care workers in a session at St. Joseph Medical Center. Roxana Mayer, who warmly embraced Jackson Lee at the close of Tuesday's session at a Fifth Ward community center, had spoken in favor of the president's health care package. The Texas Medical Board,...

What’s more, the Houston Chronicle apparently knew this and failed to include it in its glowing coverage of Mayer’s appearance. The reporter, Cindy Horswell, has admitted that she knew Mayer was an Obama delegate and that Mayer didn’t live in Jackson-Lee’s district when she wrote the Chronicle story. After getting exposed, the Chronicle quietly changed the caption on the photo without issuing a correction, removing the reference to Mayer being a doctor.

  • CNN's Sanchez Presses Jackson-Lee Over Weird Claim Phone Video Was 'Doctored'

    On Thursday’s Newsroom, CNN’s Rick Sanchez couldn’t get a straight answer out of Democratic Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee about her cell phone use during a recent health care town hall, and after he repeatedly asked why she did it and if it was disrespectful, the Texas Democrat bizarrely raised the possibility that the YouTube video of her on the phone was “doctored” [the entire interview can be viewed here; audio clips from the segment are available here].

    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...

    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...
