Normally, we don’t take The Daily Caller’s word on anything. They’re a right wing rag. But Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is notoriously hard to work for, and her tantrums are the things legends are made of, evidenced by her extraordinarily high turnover rate.
The blog interviewed a former staffer who made the sad assessment that Jackson-Lee is more abusive to her black staffers than to her non-black staffers:
“‘You stupid mother-effer’ was like a constant,” one former staffer told TheDC. “Like, all the time. But the interesting thing is she would really project that behavior more towards her African-American staffers. She would have other ethnic groups in the office, like interns or whatnot. But it was really her African-American staffers who she felt comfortable enough to really curse out. … This is something we always talked about. We chalked it up to her just feeling more comfortable acting out her aggression toward a certain group of people versus others.”
But this is what the Congresswoman had to say when her anti-bullying legislation hit the House floor”
As we saw recently with the viral video of bus monitor Karen Klein being verbally assaulted, 21st century bullying has reached beyond its previous scope of only affecting young people,” Jackson Lee said in a statement. “Now, our seniors are getting bullied, there is bullying in the workplace and some would even suggest that there is bullying between the two parties on Capitol Hill. When will it all end?
The Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call even noted the irony in an article which read, “while some say Jackson Lee is a bully, it turns out she is against kids doing the same thing.”
