Sheila Jackson Lee Plays the Race Card by Owen | 2046, 27 Dec 1717 | Politics, Politics - Texas | 0 CommentsOne of the most vile people in Washington throws down the race card. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) said she thinks the reaction of a passenger who accused United Airlines of giving away her first-class seatto the Democratic lawmaker was race-related. Jackson Lee released a statement on Twitter after a woman claimed the airline gave away her seat to the congresswoman on her flight from Houston to Washington. In the statement, posted to Twitter on Tuesday, Jackson Lee said that while she is “disappointed” to have to respond to the incident, she believes transparency is important. Lee’s outrageous behavior has been chronicled for decades. But it’s okay… she’s a liberal.
