Lady Gaga DADT Maine Rally
UPDATE: Watch Rally Video & Read More....
Lady Gaga took four U.S. service members discharged from the
military because of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” as her escorts to the
MTV Music Video Awards last week. Monday the Pop Star
headlined a rally in Portland, Maine calling on the state's two
Republican senators to vote yes on taking up a defense bill that
includes authorization to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't
Tell" policy toward gay & lesbian servicemembers.
A crucial Senate vote is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon &
supporters of the repeal say that as of now, they do not have the
60 votes needed to overcome a GOP filibuster blocking the bill.
Maine Republicans Senators Susan Collins & Olympia Snowe are
publicly undecided & could each potentially provide Democrats the
votes they need to bring the issue before the Senate. On Sept. 8th,
U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips in California ruled DADT
unconstitutional but we still haven’t heard a peep from the Obama
administration whether they will repeal this historic ruling.
Updates to Come…:)
