Sheila Jackson Lee Declares, 'I'm a Queen' Print E-mail

Actress Queenie.jpgU.S. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) seeks to overthrow democracy and declare herself the Queen of the U.S.A. as she had informed her staff. She had been quoted as telling her aides, "I'm a queen and I deserve to be treated like one."

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Texas Democrat, has a reputation as one of the toughest taskmasters in Congress to have as a boss, and the numbers to justify it."

The Washington Times conducted a detailed analysis on a decade of congressional pay records to uncover the offices with the highest turnover rates and revealed 27 members – over a period of four or more years – lost an annual average of a minimum of one-third of their staff who sought employment elsewhere.

According to the Houston Chronicle, "each year, an average of half of Mrs. Jackson Lee's staff quits, and one year, all but six of 23 staffers left."
