Earlier this week, we shared with you a video shot during a local townhall where Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee appeared to take a call on her cell phone during a cancer survivor’s question. This video has caused quite a bit of controversy, and in fairness, we thought it was appropriate to share Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee’s “response”, which she gave to CNN’s Rick Sanchez. Was she talking to some hotline that gives her answers to difficult questions? Was she talking to a constituent? Was the video “doctored?” Was it an informal setting, not a “keynote address” that made it okay? Hard to tell from this explanation but one thing is for certain; Sheila Jackson Lee doesn’t think Sheila Jackson Lee did anything wrong. Watch.
