U.S. House votes to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ How’d the locals vote?
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is closer to going bye-bye. The U.S. House voted 234-194 last night to do away with the policy that keeps gays and lesbians out of the military. So who among our local lawmakers who voted for the appeal and who voted against it?
Well, if you have a “D” behind your name, you probably voted to let gays and lesbians serve their country. If you have an “R,” then you weren’t so hot on the appeal (and you probably claimed that you wanted to see the results of the Defense Department’s study). But there were exceptions.
