How is Sheila Jackson Lee a member of Congress?
The voting debacle in Iowa is embarrassing for Democrats as it is, but Lee just made it worse.
Lee actually tried to blame the whole thing on Russia. Yes, really. How intellectually lazy would a person have to be to do this?
The Federalist reports:
Democrat Congresswoman Blames Iowa Caucus Disaster On Russia
Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas suggested Wednesday that the Russians were behind the vote-reporting app crashing during Monday’s Iowa Democratic caucuses.
At an FBI oversight hearing in the House Judiciary Committee with FBI Director Christopher Wray, Jackson Lee said she hoped Iowa Democrats would press the FBI to study the Russia’s involvement in the Iowa caucuses, where full results were yet to be released four days later.
“I hope that the Iowa Democrats will ask for an FBI investigation on the app,” Jackson Lee told Wray. “I believe that Russia has been engaged in and interfering with a number of our elections dealing with the 2016 election.”
Jackson Lee’s assertion comes as Iowa Democrats face scrutiny for using an app with major flaws to report caucus results to the state party to determine the winner.
“Certainly, we are also concerned about potential Russian interference with our elections,” Wray responded. “That’s why I created the foreign influence task force, which is acutely focused on that topic among other nation states that are attempting to influence our elections.”
How did people not laugh out loud when she said this?
