Sheila Jackson-Lee Is a Corrupt Democrat. But I Repeat Myself . . .

It is one of pet conceits of liberal Democrats that the long-established practice of having poll-watchers — party volunteers who are assigned to polling places to ensure that no vote fraud occurs — amounts to “voter intimidation” intended to “suppress” minority voting.

Vote fraud is a crime that Democrats practice habitually, routinely, as a matter of historic tradition, and which is made possible by the overwhelming dominance of the Democratic Party in urban districts. It is in such precincts that the electoral franchise is customarily extended to tombstones and vacant lots.

This has been the practice of the Democratic Party since the 19th century — the headline “Dewey Defeats Truman” would have been true, had it not been for blatant vote fraud in Chicago — but in recent years Democrats have sought to divert attention from their electoral corruption by crying “voter intimidation” when GOP poll-watchers attempt to prevent such crimes.

You will perhaps not be surprised to learn that Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) is a co-sponsor of H.R. 97, The Deceptive Practices and Voter Intimidation Prevention Act of 2009. And you will also not be surprised to learn that Sheila Jackson-Lee is a lying two-faced hypocrite. Melissa Clouthier reports at Liberty Pundits:

Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Houston) violated election laws when, on Monday, October 18, she entered into Acres Home Multiservice Community Center, walked to where the voting booths were looking for the poll watchers, greeted voters there, and then found and confronted the poll watchers before being directed to, and then asked by, the presiding judge Bernard Gurski to leave the area.
A source speaking on the condition of anonymity said that she heard people say that Sheila Jackson Lee was in the voting area. The lobby of the building was chaotic because some people were in line to vote and some people were in line for the food bank.
So the source, a poll watcher, went into the room housing the voting booths and there stood Congresswoman Lee shaking hands with voters and greeting others–clearly electioneering. The poll watcher then went to one of the clerks and asked the presiding judge to take care of it.
While this occurred, the poll watcher heard Lee loudly say to the crowd in the voting area,”I’ve heard a lot of complaints about voter intimidation by poll watchers. I am not going to allow voter intimidation.”The poll watcher started writing the incident down.
Lee then went to the poll watcher and asked, ”What’s your name? Who do you represent?” . . .

Read the whole thing. Here you have Jackson-Lee campaigning inside a polling place and accusing poll-watchers of “intimidation” in a precinct where violations of election code are reported to be “systemic.”

Sheila Jackson-Lee is arrogant. She talks on her cell phone during town-hall meetings. She has been accused of violating FEC law and failing to remit payroll taxes.

Sheila Jackson-Lee obviously doesn’t think she can be defeated.

Her Republican opponent is John Faulk.

    She’s stupid, evil and totally dishonest. She represents her district perfectly.

    Mr. Rudisill, please spend some time with me on the campaign trail. “I’ve done United Way volunteering in her district” Hmmm I wonder what liberal task you as a serious conservative was forced to support by the UW? I have heard for 3 years that SJL is in a safe seat and therefore no one should even attempt to defeat her. Please look at the bigger picture. If I average 10 to 20 more votes per precinct, I might still fail but how many Harris County wide conservatives will win their race stopping the OFA Democrats from taking over the county?
