LEAKED AUDIO: Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee Berates Staffer

LEAKED AUDIO: Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee Berates Staffer

Alleged video of Lee calling her staffer an idiot.

Audio we received today appears to be of Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee berating her staff.

Sheila Jackson Lee • 0:01 - 0:09

Uh, you took a piece of paper from that woman, uh, regarding, uh, something that was owned by Ducantell. Where is it? What, what date was it?

Staffer • 0:09 - 0:16

Oh, from Jerome took it upstairs. I'll have to call to pick it up when I switched out the papers. I'll call him.

Sheila Jackson Lee • 0:17 - 1:02

I don't want you to do a goddamn thing. I want you to have a fucking brain. I want you to have read it. I want you to say, Congresswoman, with such and such date. That's what I want. That's the kind of staff that I want to have. So some stupid other motherfucker did it. And, and I don't have the information. Nobody sent me the information. I need to, uh, ensure my, um, schedule and, uh, you know, if, if Boo Boo did it, shit ass did it, fuck face did it. And nobody knows a goddamn thing in my office. Okay? Nothing. I gave it to you. Your job was to get it on the calendar, imprint it in your brain, or send me the information back saying, “Congresswoman, I made sure that the Ovide Ducantell event that you gave me, uh, for a so-and-so date at seven is on the fucking calendar.” Not to, oh, Jerome has it.

Sheila Jackson Lee • 1:02 - 1:33

Okay. So when I called Jerome, he only sitting up there like a fat ass stupid idiot talking about, uh, what the fuck? He doesn't know. Okay? Both of y'all are fuck ups [inaudible]. It's the worst shit that I could have ever had put together. Two goddamn big ass children fucking idiots serve no goddamn purpose. Ain't managing nobody. Nobody's respecting them. Nobody gives a shit about what you're doing and you ain't doing shit. And this is an example of it. I gave it to Jerome. This is not child's work.

Lee recently announced her run for Houston mayor from a church:

Via The Texan:

Following months of rumors in the state’s most populous city, long-time U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX-18) announced last weekend she is running for mayor of Houston.

Although she had not yet filed her intention to run with the Houston city secretary nor officially named a campaign treasurer, Urban Reform was first to report that during a visit to City Cathedral last Saturday Lee made her surprise announcement.

“I hope I’ve been a humble servant for you for 28 years, many of you in my district,” said Lee. “Sheila Jackson Lee wants to come home to be your mayor of the City of Houston.”

No word on how old the recording is but due to those mentioned in the audio, it may be from years ago.

We reached out to Congresswoman Lee via phone and email but have not received a response.


We normally don’t cover the Houston scene, but many great journalists do. One is Don Hopper and you can give him a follow on Twitter or his website, Houston Conservative Forum.
