Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) then played the race card.
“Since this was not any fault of mine, the way the individual continued to act appeared to be, upon reflection, because I was an African American woman, seemingly an easy target along with the African American flight attendant who was very, very nice,” Jackson Lee said to the Houston Chronicle.
“This saddens me,” she continued. “Especially at this time of year given all of the things we have to work on to help people. But in the spirit of this season and out of the sincerity of my heart, if it is perceived that I had anything to do with this, I am kind enough to simply say sorry.”
Simon said the congresswoman was accusing her of racism when she “had no idea who was in my seat when I complained.”
The airline maintains that she canceled her own flight.
Simon said she wants a formal, written apology from United.
“It’s just impossible to suspend disbelief and swallow that story that I canceled my flight,” Simon said.
