'Queen of Mean' Sheila Jackson Lee Wins Thug Award Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Fri, Oct 10, 2014, 09:43 PM

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) easily wins the award for "meanest member of Congress."

The San Antonio Express-News reports that, "If you pay attention to local politics long enough, you'll no doubt hear the phrase: "I've never heard of a camera that Sheila Jackson Lee didn't love." Still, it's likely the Democratic representative isn't enjoying this kind of spotlight: The Washingtonian has again awarded Jackson Lee, D-Houston, the position of meanest Congress member among Democrats."

Sheila Jackson Lee has earned notoriety as the 'Grim Reaper,' for her penchant to attend funerals and give campaign speeches at memorial services.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, "The "award" is part of the magazine's biennial survey "The Best & Worst of Congress." The survey allows congressional employees to anonymously rate their bosses on the Hill. For Jackson Lee, it's not the first time she's won the "meanest" title. These wins might have something to do with this: An analysis done by they Houston Chronicle in 2011 revealed the congresswoman had the highest turnover among staff in the Houston delegation over the past decade."

Sheila Jackson Lee appears likely to win a lifetime achievement award for "meanest member of Congress."

Sheila Jackson Lee is the skidmark in the panties of Texas political history, and Wendy Davis is the yellow stain in the front.
