Patrick Leahy (born 31 March 1940) is the senior United States Senator from Vermont (1975–present, Democratic), and a lifelong Bat-fan.
DCAU filmography Edit
- "Showdown" — Governor
Trained as a lawyer, after serving four terms as State Attorney for Chittenden County in Vermont, Leahy was elected to the Senate in 1974, the only Democratic Senator from that state ever elected. He has been reelected five times, and is currently Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry.
Leahy made headlines in June, 2004, when then-Vice President Dick Cheney lost his temper after aggressive questioning and swore at Leahy.
A lifelong Bat-fan, Leahy is arguably the most eminent personage to lend his voice to the DCAU, and also has small cameo appearances in the films Batman and Robin, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
