Jerome Brooks, a staffer for Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, died from a drug overdose after being insulted by the congresswoman.

The leaked audio clip of her berating him and another staffer caused controversy.

Brooks was found dead in a hotel days after the leak, and toxicology results showed a mix of drugs and alcohol in his system.

The forensic pathologist ruled his death as an accidental overdose.

Jackson Lee has not issued a statement on Brooks’ death.

The audio clip contained demeaning and vulgar comments by Jackson Lee, and she later expressed regret but did not apologize.

“To anyone who has listened to this recording with concern, I am regretful and hope you will judge me not by something trotted out by a political opponent, that worked to exploit this, and backed by extreme Republican supporters on the very day that polls open, but from what I’ve delivered to Houstonians over my years of public service,” Jackson Lee stated.
