The article provides information on the life and works of Honorable Leslie Meek in the U.S. Unlike the typical congressional spouse, Meek does not flaunt her husband's job. She is involved in her husband's world. She makes it plain she adores her husband and she loves her life on Capitol Hill, except for the fanfare of the reception circuit and luncheons they must attend.
