Cotton Statement on Supreme Court Decision Allowing Federal Executions

Washington, D.C.  Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after the Supreme Court declined to hear a case challenging the resumption of federal executions:


“Daniel Lewis Lee is a white supremacist responsible for the heinous slaying of an entire family in Arkansas, including an 8-year-old girl. Twenty years after a jury imposed the death penalty for these crimes, the Supreme Court has rightly allowed justice to proceed.”
