Sheila Jackson Lee declares Constitution 400 years old

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, took to the House floor Wednesday and declared the Constitution to be a 400 year-old document — six years before the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock.

“Maybe I should offer a good thanks to the distinguished members of the majority, the Republicans, my chairman and others, for giving us an opportunity to have a deliberative constitutional discussion that reinforces the sanctity of this nation and how well it is that we have lasted some 400 years, operating under a constitution that clearly defines what is constitutional and what is not,” she said.

The Washington Examiner’s web editor Justin Green tweeted:

Jackson Lee received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Yale University, and a Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law.
