Cotton Statement on Further Delay of Death Penalty for White Supremacist and Murderer

Washington, D.C. — After a federal court in Indiana granted a stay of execution to convicted murderer Daniel Lewis Lee, Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement:

Justice should come quickly to the perpetrators of heinous crimes. But for more than 20 years, our justice system has instead protected a white supremacist who murdered an entire Arkansas family, including an eight-year-old girl. This brutal murderer has already exhausted every avenue of due process and is now employing frivolous delay tactics. It’s time for him to face the consequences of his actions.
