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!
