    A passenger on a United Airlines flight from Houston to Washington, D.C., accused the airline of giving her first-class seat to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas.

    Jean-Marie Simon, 63, said she purchased her flight for the last leg of her trip from Guatemala to Washington on Dec. 3 with 140,000 airline miles, the Houston Chronicle reported Saturday. When she attempted to board her flight on Dec. 18, she was informed her seat had been sold, and she was given a $500 voucher and re-seated in Economy Plus.

    The congresswoman, in turn, said it appeared the passenger targeted her "because I was an African-American woman."

    Woman gets bumped off her seat and Lee calls her a racist for complaining.

    Abuse of power for sure. We all know they didn't put a lady in her seat.Sheila surely told the proper people that she was a congresswoman so she would receive special favors at someone else's expense.
    Can't really blame the airline though, they know the crooked ass politicians can propose and promote bills that can hurt their bottom line.

    To say that they gave her seat to a Sheila sure sounds racist.

    Since it appears Jean Marie-Simon cancelled her flight due to "bad weather",......I'm curious as to why she got back on the same flight.

    UA apparently re-imbursed her and re-seated her. Ms. Marie-Simon is a DC attorney, Fullbright scholar, and teacher. I would imagine she knows what happens when you press "cancel" on the UA flight app.

    She has lived in the DC area since 1997,....yet she claims she has no idea who Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee is. Apparently she doesn't read newspapers or watches TV while at home in Wash. D.C. for the last 20 years.

    Something about this story stinks with that peculiar odor that rich people with a partisan axe to grind seem to bring out when they see an opening to....."score points".......

    It's either her, or the electronic records of the cancellation.

    What are the odds of someone canceling their first class seat, saying they didn’t then having your seat given to Sheila lee?

    I suppose you think it's 100 billion to 1.

    But the way I see it, the odds of someone cancelling their flight due to weather, then changing their mind, only to find out their seat was given to someone I never heard of?

    Even money.
