Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta complained that Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas was invading his personal space, according to emails published by WikiLeaks.

“Sheila Jackson Lee is stalking me,” Podesta wrote in an April 2015 email, several days before Hillary Clinton formally announced her candidacy for president. “In addition to wanting to be involved in everything, she specifically asked me about whether Hillary would accept the Barbara Jordan Medallion for Service at Texas Southern University.”


Sheila Jackson Lee is best known for her stalking of President Obama during his State of the Union addresses on Capitol Hill. The congresswoman typically waits for hours to reserve a speech on the aisle where Obama makes his entrance, ensuring some face time with the president.

Jackson Lee has a history of anti-social behavior and abusive treatment towards members of her staff, frequently addressing her employees as “you stupid motherfucker.”
