Jackson Lee abandons Terri, embraces press

Kevin over at blogHOUSTON notes that Sheila Jackson Lee managed to snag media attention about the Terri Schiavo bill, despite skipping the vote:
KTRH-740 news just ran a blurb that included comments from Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee (D) that suggested that she supported the Terri Schiavo legislation passed by the House early this morning. That's all well and good, but Sheila Jackson-Lee did not vote one way or the other on the legislation. However, Democrat Al Green of Houston did vote in favor of the legislation that was blasted through the House by the Republican leadership. If KTRH wanted to talk to a local Democrat who crossed party lines to support this legislation, perhaps the reporter should have talked to one who actually voted for it.
Here's the record of the House vote, held in the wee hours of this morning.
