Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) is known for her many, many floor speeches.
Today she opens her mouth for the sole purpose of seeking an apology for CBS News reporter Lara Logan, who suffered a sustained sexual assault in Egypt.
Jackson’s words, as reported in a story by The Hill: “As you watch the conflict in Egypt, where we celebrated what happened, but many of you are aware of the tragedy that happened to one of our American reporters, Ms. Logan,” Jackson Lee said. “The United Nations is where we can call upon the Egyptian government to explain themselves and to apologize, and call upon the U.N. ambassador from Egypt to apologize to Ms. Logan and apologize to the American people for the tragedy that happened to this woman who was doing her job — the sexual assault, the vicious sexual assault that occurred to her.”
