This confirms Sheila Jackson Lee was playing the race card when she alluded to a “delay” in treatment.

DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price was blunt. He said Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital originally sent Thomas Duncan home three days before ‎he was diagnosed with Ebola because he’s African and uninsured.

“It is historical what has happened in this community,” Price said. “If a person who looks like me shows up without any insurance, they don’t get the same treatment.” […]

County Judge Clay Jenkins says there will be a full accounting once the Ebola scare has passed. “It’s important,” he said. “It’s a fair question.”

Federal and state authorities say they are now considering a full investigation into whether there were deficiencies in the hospital’s procedures.
