Controversy

She ignited a firestorm in 2009 when, while the Texas House Elections Committee was hearing testimony on the voting difficulties encountered by Asian Americans who use two different names, she suggested that Asian-Americans adopt names that are "easier for Americans to deal with." Though at first defending her statement, accusing Democrats of making the issue "about race," she eventually apologized for the incident, acknowledging the "diversity of Texas" and the "enrichment" that Asian-Americans bring to the state.

2010 election

She ran for reelection to a seventh term, but in the March primary of 2010, she lost her seat to Lance Gooden, her former legislative aide. On March 4, 2014, Gooden, supported by Speaker Joe Straus, was himself unseated by intra-party rival Stuart Spitzer in the primary election.
