Hillary-endorsed candidate for Houston mayor Sheila Jackson Lee berates staff in profanity-laced tirade

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, was recently heard on recorded audio going off on one of her staff members in a profanity-laced tirade in which she said he and another staff member had no brains and are “f- -k-ups.”

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

In March, Jackson Lee threw her name in the running to become the mayor of Houston in an off-year election, which if elected, would bring her time in Congress to an end.

“I just received a notification that you have a new staffer,” Washington allegedly messaged Jackson Lee, mentioning the staffer’s name. “Call me, I have background on her.”

The staffer said she was fired in March 2018, roughly 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 planned to move forward with legal action” against the foundation.

The lawsuit was dismissed in 2020.
