Judge: Discrimination suit against Rep. Jackson Lee can proceed

A judge has refused to dismiss a federal lawsuit accusing Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of discriminating against and mocking a disabled staffer — charges the Texas Democrat denies.

The two-year old suit, first reported by The Washington Times in 2011, was filed by former legislative director Mona Floyd, who declined to comment Tuesday. Ms. Floyd said in court papers that Mrs. Jackson Lee, a 10-term congresswoman from Houston, refused to accommodate her debilitating eye condition called monocular vision.

“I don’t care anything about your disability,” the complaint quotes the congresswoman as saying.

Mrs. Jackson Lee’s legal team sought to have the complaint dismissed, arguing in part that actions concerning her staff are protected under the Speech or Debate clause of the Constitution. In a lengthy ruling, the judge disagreed.

“Decisions about whether to allow an employee to rest or to have additional time to complete an assignments are not legislative acts for which the representative enjoys constitutional immunity from suit,” U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras wrote in a Sept. 30 opinion.

    Hopefully potential punishment might include a firing squad.

    It doesn’t matter what they find this baboon guilty of, she’ll get off with a little biddy hand slap and the morons that have voted for her the past 20 years will continue to vote for her. :mad: She may be from the lowest of the low information voter districts.

    Mad Jack, Good point. Dart her and put a tracking collar on her so you can study the mating habits.

    No matter what this low-grade imbecile won’t receive any punishment or pay any fine out of her own pocket. She’s immune because she’s black and a FedGov employee. This sad excuse for a citizen couldn’t hold down a minimum wage job with her lousy attitude, hardline Marxist ideology, and low IQ, but thanks to Affirmative Action, she’s got a law degree and lifetime employment. I’ve worked with many decent and intelligent black people and they mostly cant stand this idiot knuckle dragger (sort of similar to Jewish guys hating Woody Allen being the image of typical American Jewish male, only much more intense). She’s a disgrace on so many levels.

    How the hell does this angry baboon keep getting re-elected? Is it just dopey voters and huge voter fraud? Does anyone with a room temperature IQ actually like this hag?

    Shelia Jackson Lee, a transplant from Queens, N.Y. found herself a rich vein of ignorant Democrat voters, located inner city Houston.

    An ill-mannered and rude, lowlife racist, she’s benefited from every set-aside and affirmative action program available.

    In spite of challenges, has managed to be re-elected by campaigning it’s Us vs Them.

    Witnessed her and staff at IAH, her public demeanor was shameful and embarrassing.

    Hopefully she will lose in court and lose next election.

    One of her upstanding constituents robbed my son at gunpoint two years ago when he stopped for gas in Houston. He has since gotten his concealed carry permit and I bought him a S&W .40 cal. pistol.

    Discrimination against the disabled is not looked upon favorably in the democrat party. Any penalty she incurs will be less due to her race and position as a member of a liberal grievance group, but she will still lose.

    Unless the evidence, or the plaintiff, disappears.

    Monocual vision? Let me guess: Her right eye was blind, but ber left eye was fine, and SJL obviously felt Mona was gifted, not disabled.

    But nothing will happen to her because she be Blaaak, a female, and is anti gun and pro abortion and has a “D” after her name.

    Based on those qualifications she can do NO WRONG.
