Ask, and Tell

In just a few hours, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen will be meeting with senators about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Have military leaders heeded the growing call to end discrimination in the military? Not necessarily. A Pentagon spokesman said, "The Joint Chiefs have been thinking through how they would go about offering their best advice on this issue."

Don't you just love Washington double-speak?

We need Congress to know there's immense public pressure on this issue. As they decide how to respond to today's hearing – whether to push this repeal forward or push it aside – they need to hear from you immediately.

Tell your representative and senators to repeal this discriminatory law NOW.

In case you missed it, I'm forwarding the email I sent after President Obama's State of the Union speech, announcing our $2+ million campaign to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

Please join us in this crucial effort – take the first step by sending your letter today.
