On Thursday, we reported that Sheila Jackson Lee, the Texas Democrat once dubbed the “Congressional boss from Hell,”falsely claimed Democrats never filed articles of impeachment against George W. Bush. When PJMedia’s Dwayne Horner contacted her office Thursday for further comment on her “mis-statement,” however, he was berated by a staffer who issued a not-so-veiled threat of IRS action for daring to ask a question.
The problem is two-fold. Not only did Democrats file multiple articles of impeachment against Bush, Jackson Lee personally co-sponsored one filed in 2008 by former Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio.
Horner said he first spoke to a “nice lady” who knew of Jackson Lee’s contradiction. According to Horner, the woman he spoke to even acknowledged that Jackson Lee’s statement was “a lie.”
Things got dicey, however, when he was transferred to an unidentified gentleman. According to Horner, the man he spoke to insulted him, and even called him un-American for daring to question Jackson Lee’s false statement.
“I was transferred to a gentleman on Lee’s staff,” Horner wrote. “When I again asked him about the contradiction and stated that perhaps I was confused, the man said ‘Oh look it here, we have one of those right wing, tea-bagger nut jobs on the phone taking his cues from FOX News.’”
