Is TX Congresswoman Shelia Jackson Lee an Anti-Semite?

Twenty-one members of the Congressional Black Caucus met with Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam and avid anti-Semite in 2005. And, apparently the press didn’t care, or cared not to report on it then, or now.

Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, famous for her inane comments and for taking a school teacher’s seat from her on a Houston flight, is #11 on the list of 21.

So, what is their connection to anti-Semitism and to Farrakhan, former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer asked in a recent tweet:

And Fleischer’s tweet got backlash. Someone complained. But, Twitter ruled that Fleischer’s tweet didn’t violate Twitter’s “community standards.”

Fleischer goes on to state that he doesn’t understand why meeting with someone who hates Jews isn’t a scandal, and points to the double standards of the media and liberals.

It still remains unclear what Sheila Jackson Lee’s involvement is with anti-Semitism. Why did she and the Congressional Black Caucus meet with Farrakhan?
