Repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

July 8, 2009

Exciting news!  Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) today announced that he is the lead co-sponsor of the legislation to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”  Murphy is a veteran of Iraq and former professor at West Point.  You may recall, he eviscerated Elaine Donnelly in a hearing on DADT.  For your reference (and for fun), I’ve put that clip below today’s announcement.  Murphy is taking over where Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-CA) left off when she left Congress for the State Department.  The bill has 150 cosponsors as of today, including several veterans and both Members from Maine.  You can see the full list here, or below the jump (click read more below the videos).  Send an email or make a call if your member isn’t there!
