Hatch, Lee disgraceful
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated.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.

I always knew Sen. Mike Lee would prove an embarrassment to the state, but I hoped that after Sen. Orrin Hatch's "final" re-election he might demonstrate some measure of senior statesmanship.

No, Hatch stood on the Senate floor with Lee — with former Sen. Bob Dole present in his wheelchair — and voted against an international treaty to protect the rights of the disabled.

These paranoid "representatives" of the state of Utah are a disgrace!
