Why wasn't she held accountable for her two lies under oath?
Because she's a Democrat. One set of rules/laws for the elites, one for us normals.

When she was a Houston City Councilwoman in 1993, she testified against the concealed-carry bill (HB1776) during a committee hearing. (When testifying in a hearing, you are testifying under oath. Thus a lie is perjury.) During the hearing, I provided documents to Senator Jerry Patterson that proved she lied not once but twice. One was a letter from the Florida Dept. of Licensing that was faxed to me the previous day. Although I can't recall the exact content of the letter, it essentially stated that there had been no problems with licensees committing crimes, including murder. Senator Patterson used the letter to refute Lee's lie that a licensee had walked on to a city buss and started shooting people.

Her next lie was a claim that the majority of Texans didn't want concealed-carry. I handed Patterson that morning's Houston Post newspaper that had a CHL poll on the front page. Again, I can't recall the exact percentage, but the poll showed that over 70% of Texans wanted the concealed-carry bill to pass. Liar Lee stormed out of the hearing in a huff. She was later elected to Congress where she continues her trade.

(If you look up HB1776, read the as-filed version as well as the version that passed. We amended to be just a referindum as a trap for Gov. Ann Richards, the baby-killer's mother. She fell for it, vetoed the bill, then lost re-election in 1994.)

It does no good for lying under oath to be perjury if it isn't prosecuted. Maybe if she were prosecuted for her lies, she wouldn't be in the position she is.

I don't know that anyone has been prosecuted for lying under oath when giving testimony before a Legislative Committee. There are a whole host of Anti-gunners who should have been prosecuted including the MDA leader for Texas a few years ago when testifying about campus carry.

Just another reason I never liked Ann Richards. Her tenure was an embarrassing black mark on Texas history.

Maybe, but I hav always credited her with almost single handedly turning Texas from Blue to Red.

OK, she had a lot of help, but she gave Texas a pretty good push to the red side.

She definitely taught Texas a lesson.

I would imagine because it would be hard to prove she 'knowingly and willfully' stated something 'untrue'. She isn't the brightest person you'll ever meet. There is a difference in just being 'wrong' and knowingly attempting to deceive.

This is one instance where ignorance is an excuse. Sheila Jack has no limits on ignorance.
