Or you could respond like that.We have EMAIL PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE that Rep. Jim McDermott’s executive assistant/office manager/scheduler/pet dragon Elizabeth “Liz” Becton, the Meanest Lady in DC, was not simply having a “bad day” when she went nuts on someone, over e-mail, who mistakenly saluted her as “Liz.” Below are two more of Liz Becton’s run-ins with e-mail, in which she type-screams at entire listservs about GETTING THE LUNCH LADY’S NAME RIGHT, and swears to destroy a Mole scheduler who once leaked stuff to your Wonkette.

First: Us. Hooray!

Last May, your Wonkette posted some wacky e-mails that were sent on the House Democratic schedulers’ listserv from a couple of staffers (names redacted!) asking comical questions along the lines of, “Does anyone know what type of store one would buy ‘groceries’ at?” After the post went up, a retaliatory e-mail went out to the same listserv from some new irate scheduler, swearing violence.

What kind of nasty, petty, poorly written (Did these people graduate from middle school to high school?) site is And what a base, narcissistic, illiterate group of readers they have! I will never venture to that site again. It was a total waste of my time. However, this email is for the mole among us. You are a poor excuse for a human being. You are not a team player. If I ever find out who you are, I will gladly advertise that it was you who forwarded the emails to the low-rent wonkette site. I will further inform the Speaker’s Office, Standards on Official Conduct, and all the other appropriate offices of what you did. And if you got paid for it, my lowly, putrid, little wonkette reader, you have committed a crime and you will be punished for it when you are found. I have contacted Telecom and I have informed them of what has happened and since it’s a quiet day, they are checking all the forwarded emails from this list serve.

And to my team players and fellow schedulers, I apologize that I had to include you on this email. This email was intended for the lowly loser among us.

Have a nice day!

Elizabeth Becton
Executive Assistant/Office Manager
Office of Congressman Jim McDermott

Most of Liz’s comments about Wonkette are correct. But it does become somewhat easier to read once you realize we’re writing in Farsi.

It’s perfectly understandable that she’d be furious when e-mails from her listserv were leaking to illiterate liar weblogs, but who writes like this on a professional Capitol Hill listserv? Who talks to colleagues as though it’s a war game? Liz Becton does, because she’s the meanest lady in DC.

Subject: Boycott Longworth on Tuesday


Many of you likely know D___ B___, who has been a cashier in the Longworth Cafeteria for decades. Wednesday morning D____ was suspended without pay (or fired by some accounts) for being $9 short at her register. This has outraged many of us who have seen her virtually every day for years. She is certainly one of the most beloved cafeteria workers and her dedication to customer service is exceptional. On Tuesday, we hope to join in a show of support for D___ by boycotting the cafeterias. Since all the cafeterias are owned by the Restaurant Associates we ask that you avoid all of them that day, but we realize that’s difficult during a day we’re in session. Please, if nothing else avoid Longworth.

The woman who was SUSPENDED (not fired) was D____ C____. I have communication between my COS and the COS of the CAO’s office confirming those two facts.

Although the email was sent with good intentions, the facts are wrong. I’m all for supporting someone who was wronged, please know that D___ C____, the woman who was SUSPENDED not fired, will be represented by her union regarding this matter.

Again, the lady’s name is D____ C____ and she was NOT YET FIRED. She was SUSPENDED.

For those of you who do not know, there are TWO women named “D____” who both work in the Longworth Cafeteria.

My boss and I are friends with the woman who was erroneously named in the original boycott email. She would be VERY upset if she knew her name was being sent out as the woman who was suspended.

I’ve received a snotty email from one particular scheduler who doesn’t understand the ramifications of having their name sullied by erroneous information. She wondered about my point…

See, that fight just could’ve been avoided. Was fighting really necessary over this instance of name confusion?

It was for Liz Becton, who is required to go out of her way to start fights, since that is what the title of Meanest Lady in DC demands, regularly.

And don’t get us wrong, we mean this in the most complimentary of ways! If we had to be terrible congressmen, we’d want Liz Becton on our team, to crush skulls. Go Liz! Liz is great!

    Today we are all lowly, putrid, little Wonkette readers.

    Ha, yeah, Liz, I’m sure the IT people were working real hard on that — uhh, Telecom? Are they forwarding from their voicemail to Wonkette?

    Let me put it this way, they don’t check forwarded emails and perhaps they were PRETENDING to know how to check forwarded emails and pretended that they checked for THAT forwarded email. They did YOU a disservice.

    In the future, you should be VERY careful about such things. People like to brag about their email forward checking in DC. It’s a past time for some. It’s also dangerous to email, as you have just found out.

    One other thing I’ve noticed over the years is that republicans tend to have very little regard for trial lawyers when they’re oh, say, suing an insurance company to pay the guy who’s paralyzed for life; or suing a doctor who took out the wrong liver (or something) – but call them names or something lame and it’s “I’ll see you in COURT!”

    Dear Sweets, People are being so mean to me. Tonight, I just want to take off my clothes and feel your firm fingers sliding across my naked body, your tongue targeting that naughty tattoo you made me get on our anniversary night. But we are out of okra oil. Stop by the store and get some of that oil, $3.99 for a whole quart. Yes, the purple kind. You should have done so earlier, like I told you. Do I have to do everything myself? You think you’re the only girl in Washington that I can have on the side. They all want me, you bitch! Damn, you piss me off. Oh, God, I think I hit the wrong address button. Now see what you made me do, you little cafeteria slut.

    Aw, that was sweet of you to pass on Liz’s message! Sorry I slept all day and missed the fun. Yesterday I told all I was headed over to Liz’s office to dry hump one of her cow legs. This did not go over so well. Liz kept telling me to go away, which only got me hotter. Then I soiled my pants and Liz was NOT PLEASED. Which of course only made me hotter. This went on for some time.

    This whole story has been the bright spot of my entire year. Thank you, Wonkette, for giving me some richly deserved revenge on this batshit woman who terrorized me for three sweltering months. Revenge is indeed a dish best served cold.

    I’m late to this particular party, so if this has been said, well then, fuck, ban me. Obviously, Liz must have came to DC with McDermott from Washington. She’s so Seattle Lesbian, her ridiculously outraged emails make me yawn. Take your estrogen, you butch bitch, and calm down.

  • Pop Socket

    That second set of e-mails is so ironic that Alanis Morisette could wrote a song about them.

  • DustBowlBlues

    Confession time, since it’s late and nobody’s reading. Why doesn’t this bitch send this stuff anonymously? When I was with the City, I once got a memo from the Fire Dept that had gone out to every department. One paragraph, three misspelled words. (Their instead of there, for one example). I circled them in red and sent it back with a note that said, “Spell check is not enough. Proofread before you send these out.”

    And this Liz person calls us illiterate. Base, yes. Not illiterate.

  • Marlowe

    [re=343188]ChickenTeriyakiBoy[/re]: From her salary, it looks as though she was off the public teat in 2007.
    But notice, she worked for Repubs when they ran the Hill, and then the Dems when they took over.
    She know where to get her bread buttered.

    In other news, does anyone else feel bad for Liz, a little? She obviously thinks she’s a Very Important Person in the world, to be emailing the way she does. And yet, she is completely insignificant. Her delusional self-importance makes me want to feed her some very good pot and get her to chillax. Imagine going through life with such a stiff poker up your bum bum and taking everything, including and esp. yourself, so seriously? Sad, really. Poor Liz.

  • TheReallyImportantLawyer

    Dear Liz,

    I think we should sue you under restatement 90 promissory estoppel theory. Our reliance on you as a government employee creates the obligation that you are working every minute to earn your overinflated salary. Not only are your e-mails a waste of time and resources, you also are preventing potential commerce and much needed stimulation to an economy in when you took 20 e-mails to schedule a meeting between your boss and Chase bank. You are a puppet that could and will be replaced by a machine. Your job could be replaced easily with someone willing to work without opinions and/or entitlement. I cannot emphasize enough how meaningless your career is. Your boss makes decisions to which you have no influence, and your self-entitlement should not get in the way of deals between the government and private industry. You need to be fired immediately.

    -The really important lawyer.

I’d never let my boss down with something this ridiculous. resume and references available on request.

    I have met Becton. No, she’s not a devil in real life. No horns, nothing – nada. Sorry to dash everyone’s hopes and dreams. In fact – she makes mean homemade brownies. Also, as for physical description – she is shortish, brown hair – from what I remember. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    However, this is certainly not McDermott’s finest hour. In fact – Mcdermott’s old scheduler, who I’ll just refer to as “Bev” was indeed fantastic and ran a tight ship. I also never knew her to have a superiority and ego complex like Becton. I wish she was back…

    Are you sure ? Did you check under her hair? Maybe give her a friendly tousle to feel around? The horns I’ve seen (on teevee) always seem to sprout from somewhere under the hair. She may be filing hers down a la Hellboy.
