Question: This Houston-area Congressional incumbent is funding a 2010 re-election campaign with money taken from illegal immigrants.
Who is….Sheila Jackson-Lee.
It wasn’t helpful (or maybe it was?) for the White House and their DNC apparatchiks to smear the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, alleging the Chamber is funding Republican campaigns with “foreign money”. It “forced” me to do some research.
- Sheila Jackson-Lee is one of 176 House Democrats to take SEIU money in 2010
- SEIU officials have stated that “SEIU is the largest union of immigrant workers in the country and a number of them are undocumented”
- And some states, including Sheila Jackson-Lee’s home state of New York (NO, she does not hail from Houston, Texas) are “forced union dues” states, where you can be forced to pay union dues as a condition of employment or BE FIRED BY THE UNION
Add it up and Sheila Jackson-Lee has funded her campaign with money taken from illegal immigrants.
John Faulk is running against Sheila Jackson-Lee.
Send John to Washington.
Send Sheila back to New York.
