Alexander Kame Lee (born September 9, 1977) is a Sierran politician and lawyer who served as the 40th Deputy Prime Minister of Sierra from 2018 until 2020. He has been a Member of Parliament for South Saddleback (Orange's 17th parliamentary district) since 2016. The district includes portions of southwestern Capistrano County and northeastern Watson County. He also served as a K.S. Senator for Orange between 2012 and 2016. He is a member of the Royalist Party.

Lee was born in Mission Viejo to a middle-class family. After gambling the family fortune away, his father left Lee and his family when Lee was 6. Lee lived with his grandparents after his mother lost custody rights over Lee and his siblings when he was 11. After high school, he studied economics at the University of Sierra, Irvine. He earned his J.D. from the University of Sierra, Irvine Law School in 2002. He worked as an intellectual property lawyer prior to entering into politics.

In 2002, he worked for the Capistrano County District Attorney's Office as a deputy. He was later elected as the Capistrano County District Attorney in 2006 and was reelected in 2008. In 2009, he ran against Brian Cossack in the 2010 K.S. Senate special election and won. In 2016, he announced he would not seek reelection in Senate but instead, opt to run for the vacant House seat for South Saddleback, which he secured following a Royalist victory in the 2016 general elections. His decision to switch from the more prestigious Senate to the House was an unprecedented move in modern Sierran politics and was met with ridicule and confusion by critics and colleagues alike.

In 2018, he was nominated by Prime Minister Nemesis Heartwell to serve as her deputy prime minister. His nomination was confirmed by the House in a vote of 181-75. Like Heartwell, he was originally a member of the Senate before he became a member of House. He is the first deputy prime minister to serve that previously served as a K.S. senator. During Heartwell's premiership, he would serve as a close advisor and reportedly was given many unofficial powers behind the scenes and was one of her staunchest defenders and closest allies. He also played a major role in advancing her legislative agenda.

During the 2020 Sierran federal election, Lee was re-elected, but the Royalists suffered a historic defeat and by May 4 was made to step down as Deputy Prime Minister in favor of Social Democrat Nazareth Ontoria-Diaz. From May 4 until October 23, 2020, Lee served as de-facto Deputy Leader of the Opposition, in the words of Lee himself and Heartwell, during her tenure as Leader of the Opposition. After Heartwell resigned on October 12, Lee was made acting Leader of the Opposition and Leader of the Royalist Party until a successor could be chosen in the 2020 Royalist Party leadership election. Lee was viewed as a possible contender for the election, but while he admitted to contemplating a possible candidacy for the position of party leader, he ultimately declined to enter and instead endorsed Kenneth O'Conner instead, the latter of which was sworn in as party leader on December 4 at the 2020 Royalist National Convention where Lee was invited to serve as a keynote speaker.

Early life, education, and early career

Alexander Kame Lee was born on September 9, 1977, at the Great Wolf Medical Center in Mission Viejo, Orange. He was born out of wedlock to his father, Louis Lee, and his mother, Angela Santos. He was given the middle name "Kame" (カメ), the Japanese word for "turtle", because his delivery lasted nearly 19 hours. He has three other siblings, as well as two half-siblings from his mother's previous marriage. His father was a White Astorian from the state of Idaho with English and Scots-Irish ancestry. He is a distant descendant of Robert E. Lee through his father. His mother was a native of Mission Viejo and had both Argentine and Mexican ancestry. His maternal grandparents were active missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who had converted from Catholicism a few years prior to Lee's birth.

Lee and his siblings experienced child abuse by their parents. His father underwent financial troubles and spent the family fortune on gambling, which led to the Lee family move out of their foreclosed home in Mission Viejo to a small apartment unit in San Clemente-by-the-Sea. After his father was caught possessing methamphetamine, he was fined and served six months. After his release, Lee's father returned to Astoria rather than to Lee and the family. At the time of Lee's father's departure from Sierra, Lee was 11 years old. While Lee's parents were never married, Lee's mother assumed full custody rights over the children and began subsisting on welfare and unemployment benefits to support the family. Lee stated that his childhood experiences following the loss of their home and his father's presence in the household left him "long-lasting, irreparable trauma".

When Lee was 13, he was reported missing by his mother after he wandered off from the family apartment. A local search and rescue mission eventually found Lee unharmed about 4 miles away from the Lee residence 3 days later in a wooded area. He was evaluated and later diagnosed with a mild form of schizophrenia. Lee struggled in middle school but began devoting to his studies more seriously by his freshman year in high school. He graduated in 1994 with high honors and was accepted to the University of Sierra, Irvine where he double-majored in political science and economics. He participated in the school's mock trial and was a member of Tau Beta Phi, a law professional fraternity.

He earned his Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Sierra, Irvine School of Law and was admitted into the Federal Bar of Sierra and the Provincial Bar of Orange as a licensed attorney after passing the consolidated bar exam on his first attempt in 2002.

In 2002, Lee was hired as a deputy district attorney in Capistrano County, Orange where he specialized in domestic abuse cases, as well as cases involving individuals who had mental disorders. He received early recognition for his track record of winning cases. In 2005, he received the Rising Lawyer of the Year Award by the Sierran League of Lawyers for his work with the Capistrano County District Attorney's Office. He was appointed as Assistant District Attorney by District Attorney James G.D. Thornton and was made chief of the Family Law Division where he supervised four other attorneys and six paralegals. He also actively served as a priest for his local Mormon church and volunteered as a scout leader for the Sierran Scouting Association during this time.

Deputy Prime Minister

On March 18, 2018, Lee was elected deputy prime minister of Sierra and sworn into office by Associate Justice Samuel Strudwick, using Alfred von Schliefen's Bible, opened to Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” In his first act as deputy prime minister, he swore-in members of the Getty House senior staff and delivered opening remarks before a meeting of the Executive Council.

2020 COVID-19 diagnosis

On March 26, 2020, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister announced that Lee had tested positive with COVID-19, although he was asymptomatic at the time of the announcement. Lee later confirmed the diagnosis online via Twitter. He was confirmed to have exposure with several confirmed patients including Prime Minister Nemesis Heartwell, who had tested positive herself two days prior. He and Leader of the Senate Opposition Malcolm Siegel were the highest-profile Sierrans to test positive that day. He was placed under mandatory quarantine and supervision by the Royal Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
