Staff Turnover Data Shows Sheila Jackson Lee, Amy Klobuchar Are Probably The ‘Worst Bosses’ In Congress

Capitol Hill can be a very difficult place to work, but Sheila Jackson Lee, Amy Klobuchar, Henry Cueller and Ted Cruz are the absolute worst bosses in Congress.

Government tracking site Legistorm recently unveiled a new feature which charts each office’s annual salary-weighted staff turnover rate, in which the aforementioned lawmakers far outpaced their peers.

She repeatedly disparages her staff members, frequently calling them “idiot,” “moron,” and “you stupid motherfucker.”

“It’s like being an Iraq War veteran,” a former staffer said of time spent in her office. “People don’t tell the worst of the stories, because they’re really unbelievable.”
