“I truly hope that someone will investigate the contents of the envelope Sheila Jackson Lee passed to Dr. Ford’s attorney before today’s proceedings,” viewer Diane Deberry Woodard said on Facebook.
“I want to know what Sheila Jackson Lee handed to Ford’s lawyer during the first break. One white envelope and one that looked reddish,” viewer Laura Sigler said.
Rep. Jackson Lee’s press office gave this statement to KHOU11 News:
“Simply, what was passed were unopened stationery notes to counsel for Dr. Ford from women who wanted to enter the hearing room but were not allowed to enter the hearing room.”
If so, then why not provide the contents to the public– during a public hearing?
