This bitch...

Post by Nightshade » Sun Dec 24, 2017 1:51 pm

...has the temerity to accuse anyone that points out the truth about her arrogant psychopathic behavior as 'racist.'

The day Sheila Jackson Lee dies, I will celebrate.

A passenger on a flight from Houston to Washington D.C. has accused United Airlines of giving her first-class seat to U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. D-Houston, and then threatening to remove her from the plane for complaining and snapping a photo of the Houston congresswoman.

"It was just so completely humiliating," said Jean-Marie Simon, a 63-year-old attorney and private school teacher who used 140,000 miles on Dec. 3 to purchase the first-class tickets to take her from Washington D.C. to Guatemala and back home.

When it came time to board the last leg of her flight home from George Bush Intercontinental Airport on Dec. 18, after a roughly hour-long weather delay, Simon said the gate attendant scanned her paper ticket and told her it was not in the system.

Did you cancel your flight?, the attendant asked.

"No," she said she replied. "I just want to go home."

Her seat, 1A, was taken, she was told. Simon was given a $500 voucher and reseated in row 11, Economy Plus.

POLL: Jackson Lee named 'meanest' in Congress

Simon later learned that Jackson Lee was in her pre-purchased seat and has alleged that the congresswoman received preferential treatment, which United denies.

"After thoroughly examining our electronic records, we found that upon receiving a notification that Flight 788 was delayed due to weather, the customer appears to have canceled her flight from Houston to Washington, D.C. within the United mobile app," United said in a statement. "As part of the normal pre-boarding process, gate agents began clearing standby and upgrade customers, including the first customer on the waitlist for an upgrade."

Simon denies that she cancelled her ticket. She sent a reporter a screenshot of the United website showing only one "inactive" reservation – a flight to Houston in August to visit her daughter that she had to cancel because of Hurricane Harvey.

A United official said screenshot doesn't show the December flight as cancelled because she ultimately took the flight.

The official provided another screenshot of United's internal software system and said that it showed the flight had been cancelled on a mobile app, though a reporter was unable to independently verify that on Saturday because of the system's coding.

Jackson Lee issued a statement on Saturday afternoon saying: "I asked for nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary and received nothing exceptional or out of the ordinary."

Simon said she saw Jackson Lee board the plane with a flight attendant before all of the other passengers, but did not know who she was until another passenger told her after they were seated.

Only in NS's world is there racist and misogynistic hate being spewed as a proxy for an airline and/or mobile app screw up and a ticked off customer. Good grief NS, the woman's ticket had somehow been canceled. Software is not perfect. In the new world of flying the "friendly" skies, any empty seat gets sold ASAP to the next available passenger. Plus, this is probably more an elitist issue than a racist issue. I'm sure that most congress members, either man or woman, no matter what their race, would be given preferential treatment by any airline. Sure, the rep's reaction and snitty comment was tasteless, there's no accounting for someone having any tact. But I'm sure everyone involved was already pissed off at the situation and said things they shouldn't have said in the heat of the moment. :roll:

This bitch IS INDEED a PIECE OF SHIT.

This arrogant psychopathic behavior isn't new for her:
'I'm a queen and I demand to be treated like a queen!'

How Congresswoman involved in race row on plane was chauffeured a block to Congress and was nearly banished from an airline before

  • Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat, has a storied history of bad behavior on planes and in automobiles

    Previous news reports have captured Jackson Lee berating flight attendants over not getting a seafood meal in first class

    As well as making her Congressional aides, she sometimes referred to as 'you stupid motherf***er,' drive her one block to work

    This week the congresswoman suggested a white woman was being a racist when the woman complained after United gave Jackson Lee her first class seat
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... avior.html

"Texas representative Sheila Jackson Lee, voted one of the top three meanest by House staffers five times. Former aides tell of excessive workloads, brutal criticism, and callous comments toward a disabled staffer (who is suing Lee). She got seven times as many votes as North Carolina’s Virginia Foxx."

Well NS, maybe the voters will take notice and vote her elitist rear end out of office. But before you condemn just one congressperson, and ONLY a Democrat at that, remember, the whole of Congress, both the Senate and the House, is a virulent cesspool of arrogance and elitism, nurtured by the contagion of power and money. It's obviously very easy to catch once these formerly normal people get elected into office. :wink:
