Congresswoman Baldwin vs Condoleezza....

By Charlotte Robinson, February 26, 2008
Press Release: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has challenged Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about reported inequities in employment practices concerning gay & lesbian employees & their partners in the State Department & requested immediate remedial changes.
Baldwin Stated in a letter sent to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice: “We have followed with great interest & concern the media coverage of the workplace inequities facing gays & lesbians in the U.S. Department of State. As in the case of Former Ambassador to Romania Michael Guest, the inequitable treatment of gay & lesbian Foreign Service Officers (FSOs) & their partners should not be allowed to lead highly qualified employees to leave the State Department at a time when their service is needed more than ever. Many of these inequities could clearly be remedied through your leadership as Secretary, without legislative changes. We write to highlight basic & common-sense policy changes that beg your prompt attention & ask that you act to make eliminating inequities facing gays & lesbians @ the State Department a priority.”
So now it's Condoleezza's move.....Updates to come..... :)
