Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Liberal Rep Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) Sued for Humiliating Visually Impaired Aide

(UK Mail Online) - A congresswoman who has championed the rights of disabled people is being sued by a visually impaired former aide who claims she made 'humiliating' comments about her eyesight.

At one point, the lawsuit claims, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee told Mona Floyd: 'I don't care anything about your disability.'

The lawsuit, filed last month in District of Columbia federal court, is seeking unspecified pay and compensatory and punitive damages.

Mona Floyd, a lawyer who served as the congresswoman’s legislative director, claims Mrs Jackson Lee's treatment of her amounted to 'unlawful discrimination' and contributed to her resignation last fall.
