Hillary-backed Houston mayoral candidate Sheila Jackson Lee berates staff in profanity-laced tirade


Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was recently heard on audio recording one of her staffers in a profanity-laced tirade in which she said he and another staffer had no brains and were “f- -k- UPS.”

Jackson Lee, a Hillary Clinton-backed congresswoman who built a reputation in Washington as one of the “baddest” members of Congress, has represented the same Houston, Texas, district in the House of Representatives for over 28 years old.

In March, Jackson Lee ran to become mayor of Houston in an off-year election that, if elected, would end her term in Congress.

In audio obtained by Texas newspaper Current Revolt and published Saturday, Jackson Lee is heard speaking with a male staff member when she asked him: “You took a piece of paper from this woman regarding something that belonged to Duncantell . Where is he? What date was it?

The man responded by telling the representative that he had given the piece of paper to Jerome, who took it upstairs.

The staff member then tells Jackson Lee that he needs to call Jerome, before being interrupted.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was heard on an audio recording of one of her staffers calling them “fk-ups.”

“I don’t want you to do anything (expletive),” she said. “I want you to have a (expletive) brain. I want you to read it. I want you to say: “Madam Congresswoman, it was such and such an appointment. That’s what I want. That’s the kind of staff I want to have.

Jackson Lee continued to spew profanities at the staff member while berating him about how she expects her staff members to handle calendar events, particularly those of Ovide Duncantell, founder of the Black Heritage Society, Inc.

Rather than handing it off to someone else, the congresswoman said she needs whoever took the event information to know when and where the event is taking place.

Rep. Jackson Lee chastised the staffer over how she expects her staff to handle calendar events, particularly Ovide Duncantell’s.

But in this case, the staff member sounded off on the audio as if he had given it to another staff member.

“When I called Jerome, he sat up there like a big (expletive), just talking about this (expletive) he doesn’t know,” she said. “You’re both (expletive)-ups… This is the worst (expletive) I could have ever put together.” Two (expletive) big (expletive) kids. (expletive) idiots. No use (expletive).

“No one respects him, no one cares what you do. And you don’t (expletive). And this is an example. I gave it to Jérôme. It’s not child’s work, okay,” Jackson Lee said.

The congresswoman did not immediately respond to Fox News’ inquiries about the recording.

This isn’t the first time Jackson Lee has attacked staff members.

In fact, in 2011, a Daily Caller report cited a number of former staffers saying she used demeaning language and profanity when speaking to them.

Rep. Jackson Lee has lashed out at staff members before, as this isn’t her first time.

She was also accused of forcing her staff members to work long hours, even into the early hours of the morning, and demanding that they drive her wherever she went, no matter how far she traveled. .

Jackson Lee was forced to resign as chair of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) in 2019 following a lawsuit filed by a former employee who claimed she was fired in retaliation for a planned lawsuit related to an alleged rape in 2015 by a supervisor. .

According to the New York Times, which first reported on Jackson Lee’s proposed resignation, CBCF board members have asked Jackson Lee to resign as president or face a vote impeachment after the trial was made public a week earlier.

In the suit, the unnamed former employee alleged that she was raped while she was an intern at CBCF by the foundation’s internship program coordinator and her supervisor at the time.

Two years later, she was hired to work for Jackson Lee, who had recently been named president of the CBCF board of directors.

Shortly after he was hired, Doe said Jackson Lee received a text message from then-CBCF Executive Director A. Shaunise Washington.

“I just received notification that you have a new staff member,” Jackson Lee allegedly texted, mentioning the staff member’s name. “Call me, I have information on her.”

The employee said she was fired in March 2018, about two weeks after she told Jackson’s chief of staff, Glenn Rushing, that she had “recently learned more about her case involving Mr. Jones and CBCF and that “she planned to take legal action” against the Foundation.

The lawsuit was dismissed in 2020.
