Lee's shameful vote
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Enough already with the sophomoric antics of Sen. Mike Lee.

First, his denial of voting for any judicial appointment by President Barack Obama, even ones he favored. Now, the pride in his voice I heard in a National Public Radio "Morning Edition" news clip about his voting against the United Nations treaty to help disabled citizens around the world have the same hope Americans with disabilities have.

Lee essentially said: That is what my constituents want. Well, not this constituent.

What next, honorable senator? Leg wrestling with über-cool Rep. Jason Chaffetz? Or edging him out of his title as a top D.C. tweeter?

Shame on Lee.
