Problems with geography

This is Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas). Today, I covered to a hearing of the subcommittee she chairs. Remarkably, she twice misidentified the states members of her committee come from.

First, she (almost, before stopping herself) said that Republican Steve Austria was Hawaii. He is from suburban Colombus, Ohio, which is only 4,500 miles off.

She followed this up by saying Eric Massa, a Democrat from New York, was from Ohio.

Now, members of congress obviously have a lot on their minds and need to keep track of a lot of information. But there are only 16 members of the subcommittee. Shouldn’t she be able to remember where they are all from?
