She's stepping down as leader of the Congressional Black Caucus due to pressure from a lawsuit by a staffer who says Lee fired her after she was assaulted by a Black Caucus Foundation supervisor. She Jack didn't get the Me Too memo I guess.

Why does she have to step down? Pressure from who? Is stepping down some kind of concession in the lawsuit?

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee gave up a subcommittee chairman’s post and appears to have been ousted as chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation after she was accused of retaliating against an employee who said a foundation supervisor raped her.
The Texas congresswoman had been in line to be chair of the Judiciary Committee’s crime, terrorism and homeland security subcommittee, but is out now amid concerns her situation would derail important work on the Violence Against Women Act.
Despite being the third-ranking Democrat on the committee, she was excluded from all of the subcommittee chairs.
Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler said Ms. Jackson Lee made a decision to “voluntarily and temporarily step back.”
“This decision does not suggest any culpability by Rep. Jackson Lee,” said Mr. Nadler, New York Democrat. He said Rep. Karen Bass would serve as chairwoman “until the matter is resolved and Rep. Jackson Lee can resume the role of chair.”



Why would anyone not investigate this? Why would she want to sweep a possible assault under the rug?

Politics is such a cess pool. They all deserve each other.

Because the guy accused of raping the intern is one of her senior cohorts on the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and she figured she could just fire this young girl and the problem would go away. She's indicative of the hypocrisy and back stabbing that go on daily in DC politics. How she keeps getting elected is beyond me; her constituents are gullible idiots.

She makes the rounds on weekends when in Houston to black churches and funerals etc in her district and they fawn all over her while she tells them she's fighting every day for them back in DC. She's disgusting.

Oh, yes she is! Ugh.

I've met her. Not impressed. There is a smug air about her.

It shows, even on the TV.
