Two things about this story that are concerning. One, is that the woman may have been bumped by a Congresswoman, with many seats remaining on the plane (the plane was not full). And two, the Congresswoman is flying first class, so I'd be curious to know if that travel was for personal reasons, or government business. And if government business, what's wrong with Coach, like most of the common folk?

But it's stories like this, that tend to make Congress unpopular. It wreaks of entitlement, if indeed it's true. But the woman appears to be very credible, and seems to back up her story with paperwork.

You want suspicion, I'm suspicious that a man claiming to be a Texas congressman is quoted in this piece bad-mouthing Jackson Lee (how does HE know why this passenger was bumped?), yet his name is not given...

Just to say, this looks funny. I'll suspend judgment pending more.
