Taxpayers are slaving away at their jobs, oftentimes at more than two jobs, so that they can pay for our national security, roads, teachers, and….Sheila Jackson Lee’s trip to LA for the 57th annual Grammy’s. SJL proudly wears the dunce title of Texas Greatest Embarrassment and apparently she feels that she is owed more than her salary. Not a shock given that she does represent the Texas Entitlement Department. This is the same woman who doesn’t want us to think of anything in the terms of “welfare”– she prefers that it be referred to as the “transitional living fund” She never saw a shiny thing she didn’t feel wasn’t owed to her- so why shouldn’t we also be responsible for her gallivanting down the red carpet and the exorbitant amount of expenses associated with that trip?
Thanks to Kristine Galvan at FOX for bringing us this little jewel of a video where when questioned by a reporter about who paid for her expenses to the Grammy’s, she flatly refused to answer. This should make your blood blood. So much for transparency in our public offices. I think it’s time for a Texas sized audit on Sheila Jackson Lee’s office.
