Republican Sen. Mike Lee says Democratic voting rights bill was ‘written in hell by the devil himself’
In an interview with Fox News, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) called H.R. 1, the recent major voting and ethics reform law passed by House Democrats, “rotten to the core.” He accused Democrats of passing a bill which will give the federal government more power over elections in order to benefit Democratic candidates.
