Sheila Jackson-Lee is America’s hardest working congresswoman, always out there making headlines for saying stupid things and doing really terrible things.
The latest terrible thing that Sheila Jackson-Lee did was hand a “Certificate of Congressional Recognition” to a rapper most famous for singing about drug dealing.
"Houston Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee was in the midst of NBA All-Star Game festivities in Houston this past weekend. The Democratic congresswoman from Houston took time to honor Atlanta hip-hop star Jay Jenkins, known as 'Young Jeezy,' for his community work across the country.
"During All-Star Game weekend, Jackson-Lee presented with a 'Certificate of Congressional Recognition' embossed with a gold seal.
"'Your core values of hard work and integrity has helped improve youth in the Houston community,' declared the certificate, which was signed by Jackson-Lee."

Other things that Young Jeezy is famous for include his “My President is Black” song with lyrics like “Mr. Black President, yeah Obama for real/They gotta put ya face on the 5000 dollar bill”.
More recently Young Jeezy released another song titled O.J. with the refrain “Killin’ that white bitch, OJ” and “I just gotta keep killin’ that white bitch”.
In his defense, Young Jeezy claimed that the song wasn’t about murdering Nicole Brown, but about cocaine. So clearly Sheila Jackson-Lee made the right choice here.
