BREAKING NEWS Washington, D.C. – Years before she was accused of receiving preferential treatment and costing a passenger her seat on a United Airlines flight, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee was named the “meanest” member of Congress. She appeared on Washingtonian magazine’s “best and worst of Congress” list in 2014. The biennial survey polls congressional staffers on what they really think of their Capitol Hill bosses. At the time, the Texas congresswoman won the title of the “meanest” person on Capitol Hill. The survey has not been taken since 2014, after Lee complained that the title was unfair, and then threatened to kill every person that participated in the poll who she felt maliciously mischaracterized her.
