My Temp Congresswoman Throws a Hissy Fit

When you embarrass the folks at Lone Star Times you are acting way out of line.

Shelly Shelly My Shelly Sekula Gibbygelly provoked the mass resignation of the staff in Tom DeLay's old office by going on a 15 minute fit according to the Lone Star Times. "Sources close to the situation indicate to that SSG’s outbursts included a 15 minute long body-shaking, fist-pounding screaming fit." The Congressional newspaper The Hill reports she was upset the President and Vice President didn't personally visit her temporary office says LST.

Now breaking is that she is after the staff for deleting files and wants them investigated. Fort Worth Star-Telegram: Sekula-Gibbs said in a statement Thursday that seven employees in her Washington office and the district office in Stafford, Texas, outside Houston, "deleted records and files without my knowledge or permission" before quitting.

The temporary congresswoman had earlier embarrassed herself by promising sweeping changes during her one week of voting in a major Washington Post story, had caused even Republican members to walk out of a memorial service to a Houston police officer after she turned it into a campaign speech, and had switched stripes from being pro-choice when running for Houston City Council to anti-abortion when running for Congress, along with suddenly developing other conservative interests.

The Chronicle now has the story but except for a new odd quote from Miss Hissy Fit doesn't advance the story.
Roll Call also claimed that Sekula-Gibbs was upset that President Bush and Vice President Cheney did not attend a reception in her office Tuesday. "It's just rumor, rumor, rumor," Sekula-Gibbs said.

Her chief of staff and former council aide, Lisa Dimond, who has worked with the interim congresswoman for more than two years, said her boss is wonderful to work for.

"She is a doctor and she has wonderful people skills," Dimond said of the dermatologist.
I have heard the same thing said about Senator Cat-Killer Frist.
