Frist claims he didn't get any requests for voice vote.
Frist is saying (via Buzzflash) that he never got a request from anybody for a voice vote on the anti-lynching resolution.
What a wanker.
Bob Stevenson, Frist's chief spokesman, said Tuesday evening the procedure the majority leader established was "requested by the sponsors."
The chief sponsors of the resolution, Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and George Allen (R-Va.), disputed that assertion.
Landrieu said Monday before the resolution was adopted she would have preferred a roll call vote but had to accept the conditions set by Senate leaders.
