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 seven times, and has served as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and President pro tempore of the Senate. He also served as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry from 1987-1995.
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. All royalties and fees from his film and television appearances are donated to charities and the Kellogg-Hubbard library in Vermont where he read comic books as a child
