Few lawmakers have expressed as much outrage over President Obama's unconstitutional "recess" appointments as Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). He was among the first to warn about the consequences of the president's unilateral action on Jan. 4.

More than a month later, a new director is running the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members of National Labor Relations Board are conducting business—all in blatant violation of the U.S. Constitution, Lee said in an interview with The Heritage Foundation.
