Sheila Jackson Lee is a proud member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Texas’s 18th District, which includes most of inner-city Houston. She is also one of the unintentionally funniest people ever to serve in Congress. Every time she opens her mouth something ludicrous comes out:
I’m going to, first of all, denounce the utilization of this intrusion by Wikipedia through the Russian intrusion. [Emphasis added]

Forget for a moment the disconnected gibberish and focus on who Lee malapropistically blames for all of the leaked documents that are making the lives of Hillary Clinton and the DNC a living hell. Not WikiLeaks, but Wikipedia.
Oh, no! I have donated money to Wikipedia. Will I be hauled off to jail for funding espionage?
Lest you think this is an innocent one-off example of word confusion, Lee, a graduate of Yale, has a lengthy history of idiotic comments and foot-in-mouth disease. Examples:
- She once asked a NASA administrator if the Mars rover would be able to send back photos of the place where Neil Armstrong planted the American flag.
- In 2014, she announced on the House floor that the U.S. Constitution was 400 years old.
- The same year she introduced a proposal that word “welfare” be changed to the Orwellian-sounding “transitional living fund,” so as not to hurt the feelings of those living off the government dole.
