On Friday, a number of Twitter users reported that Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee essentially made a fool of herself while disrupting the Electoral College count and certification.  Reports coming from Twitter users observing the count indicate that she’s objected to every single state count so far.


Maybe not every one, but she did object quite a bit.

According to The Hill:

Freshman Democratic Reps. Jamie Raskin (Md.) and Pramila Jayapal (Wash.) also tried to raise objections, but Biden cut them off. Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) attempted to voice protests as well.
As Jayapal tried to make her case, Biden cut in: “There is no debate, and if it’s not signed by a senator the objection cannot be entertained.”
Going off the official script, Biden then added, “It is over,” sparking cheers and laughter from Republicans, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).


According to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Jackson Lee was cut off when she started mentioning the alleged Russian hacks:

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., also objected:


It seems Vice President Joe Biden is one of the few adults in the room…

Maddow added:

This is significant — House members can object all they want, but those objections are meaningless unless they can get support from a member of the Senate.

Here’s video of Jackson Lee raising an objection:

Indeed, an embarrassment to the Lone Star State…


Jackson Lee, by the way, was once dubbed the “Congressional boss from Hell” in a series of articles by the Daily Caller — and with good reason.

Frankly, the entire country deserves better…

This is a breaking report, no doubt there’ll be much more to come.  Stay tuned and break out the popcorn…
