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.

Really?

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.

What a wanker.
