Airlines took my seat and gave it to Sheila Jackson Lee
« on: December 25, 2017, 06:53:51 AM »
Typical Racist, elitist Jackson Lee behavior.



Jean-Marie Simon was at Bush International in Houston on her way home from a trip to Guatemala last week, when she witnessed U.S. Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) get ushered onto the plane before everyone else lined up, she wrote on Facebook.

When it came time for her to board the Dec. 18 flight, Simon said the gate attendant told her that her ticket was not in the system.

“A second United agent confirmed that I had no seat, not just the first class seat I had purchased, but no seat, period. I didn’t even have a reservation anymore,” she wrote.

When she was asked if she’d canceled her reservation, she said she hadn’t, she just wanted to get home.

“I said I wanted my seat, that I had paid a lot of miles for that seat, and that it was United’s responsibility to undo the seat assignment and return it to me, the person who had paid for it,” she wrote.

The United attendant told her that united.com had changed her reservation about an hour earlier and that another passenger had been upgraded to her seat.
After being the last person to get on the plane, Simon said another Texas congressman who sat next to her told her that Jackson Lee had swiped her seat and that she “regularly does this.”

“Jackson Lee gives us all a bad name; it’s shameful,” he reportedly told her.

She decided to walk to the front of the plane and snap a photo of the rep in seat 1A.

Five minutes later, she said a flight attendant came over to ask if she was “going to cause any problems,” and warned her that she’d be escorted off the plane if she did, she wrote.

In a statement, Jackson Lee said she overheard Simon speaking with an African American flight attendant and saw her snap the photo.

“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” Jackson Lee said to the Houston Chronicle.

Not surprisingly she tried to play the race card to distract from the facts of the situation. United should not have done this, but they were put into a bad situation.

This bitch makes me sick to look at her. No matter how much lipstick, gold, and diamonds you mask her with, she's still a commie pig.

They are always saying they work for the people. If this pig actually believed that she would have declined the seat.

It looks like her security detail strongarms "TYhe Little People" into doing her bidding.

I heard this morning that United said "the computer" did it. That is so lame. I was platinum level on Delta for a few years and I fully understand upgrades to first class. One thing that NEVER happens is a paying first class passenger gets bumped for a frequent flyer member, regardless of rank.

Yep. Anyone with a brain could see through this. My experience with United is they don't have a brain.

They simply don't care. Their planes could be falling out of the sky and they'd just blame Boeing despite the fact they didn't maintain them properly (eg fudging paperwork), but people would still fly.
The only bad publicity that scares them is abusing animals and Veterans, the rest are mere oblivious cattle to be herded into cramped seats.

My son has to go from LA to AZ several times a year. He used to fly Continental and now it is United. United has managed to take a pretty good airline and made into what United has been.

Uh-oh.... 
http://dailycaller.com/2011/03/02/congressional-bosses-from-hell-sheila-jackson-lee/

Quote
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas also hands out nicknames to the people who work for her. The Houston Democrat addressed one of her employees as “you stupid motherfucker.” And not just once, but “constantly,” recalls the staffer, “like, all the time.”

What a treat to work for!

Quote
Capitol Hill is famous for its demanding, insensitive bosses. Yet even by the harsh standards of Congress, Sheila Jackson Lee stands out. She may be the worst boss in Washington. “It’s like being an Iraq War veteran,” says someone who worked for her. Strangers may say, “‘oh I know what you’ve been through.’ No, you really don’t. Because until you’ve experienced it…. People don’t tell the worst of the stories, because they’re really unbelievable.”

For some, a job in Jackson Lee’s office proved not just emotionally but physically perilous. One staffer recalls a frank conversation with his doctor, who told him he needed to quit. “It’s your life or your job,” the doctor told him, warning that the stress and long hours were wreaking havoc on his body.

Only a few on staff fought back. One of Jackson Lee’s drivers became so frustrated with her abuse the person pulled the car over and demand she stop: “She’s screaming and swearing. ‘M.F.’ everything. Finally I slammed on the brakes and told her to get the hell out of my car. I’m like ‘I can’t drive with you like this. Either get out, or you can calm down.’ And she’s like ‘you need to go or get fired.’ I’m like, ‘that’s fine. But I’m either leaving without you or you can calm down,’” the staffer said.

Jackson Lee then threatened to call the police and claim she was being held hostage in the car. But she finally did calm down when the staffer called her bluff, offering to flag down a Capitol Police officer to explain the situation.

A grown up child?   Throwing a temper tantrum?

Quote
Nathan Williams, who quit his job when Jackson Lee threw a cell phone at him, told the Houston Chronicle in 2002, “I don’t think I ever got home before 11 o’clock at night.”

Reminds me of Hillary Clinton, alledged tossing an ashtray at Bill.   No doubt, it was a worthless "Obama Phone"...

Quote
Her former drivers say the congresswoman demanded they run red lights and drive on highway shoulders around traffic. This caused at least one accident. As Jackson Lee was yelling at a staffer to drive faster she turned too sharply, smashing the side of her car into a wall.

I can't imagine what SHE would drive like!   God help us!

Quote
On Christmas Eve, one staffer was at a midnight mass ceremony at her church. When the boss called, the staffer didn’t answer. “She got so irritated that I wasn’t answering her call on Christmas Eve. So she called me every minute for 56 minutes,” the source recalled.

Yup, more important than God - so she thinks?   This is too rich - read the whole article, it's a mind blower!

Quote
Due to the proximity of the Treasury Department’s headquarters to the White House, Secret Service officers told the driver not to park there. After an argument with the agents, who kept telling the driver to back off, Jackson Lee finally emerged from the building.

As the car drove away, a Secret Service van flashed its lights behind them. “Keep driving,” Jackson Lee told her staffer. Ultimately, the driver pulled over in defiance of the boss’s wishes. At this point, Jackson Lee emerged from the car, screaming, “I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee! Who do you think you are?” to a team of Secret Service agents.

Jackson Lee accused the “white” agent at the gate of racism, claiming she wouldn’t have to deal with “this stuff” when Barack Obama became president. She then filed a formal complaint with the Secret Service, which prompted an investigation. A Treasury official later explained that the accusation had been dismissed because the agent in question was Hispanic, not white.

 :rolleyes:  ya gotta be kidding, and she's a public servant?   :rolleyes:   Has she done anything for her constituents?  other than embarrass herself?
