It’s time to end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
This week, the Senate Armed Services Committee, a committee on which I sit, will be marking up the annual, must-pass Defense Authorization bill, and some of my colleagues and I will be submitting an amendment to include the full repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” If our amendment passes, the likelihood of repeal this year increases dramatically.
That’s why I’m launching an emergency petition that I will be taking into the markup session, to show my colleagues the depth and breadth of support for repeal — encouraging them to do the right thing and include the amendment in the bill we send to the floor for final passage. But I need your help, because it will be a very close vote.
Please sign my emergency petition to the Senate Armed Services Committee in support of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” right now, before the Wednesday deadline!
