Senators took the first step toward allowing gays to serve openly in the military Thursday evening, with the Senate Armed Services Committee voting 16-12 to approve an amendment to the Defense authorization bill that would repeal the don’t ask don’t tell policy.
In the House, an amendment by Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) to the Defense authorization bill that would repeal the don’t ask, don’t tell policy passed the House Thursday night with Roll Call #317 on a 234-194 vote.
I would especially like to thank Judy Biggert (R-IL), Joseph Cao (R-LA), Charles Djou (R-HI), Ron Paul (R-TX), and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) for their votes!
