Public Support Requested In Ohio And Indiana To Repeal DADT

The congressional lame-duck session will begin soon and the question is: Will "don't ask, don't tell" be repealed or not?
 
The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network is trying to get public support in Ohio and Indiana. This could be a great way to influence the senators for the end of "don't ask, don't tell."

Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, said in a statement that “Senator John McCain wants repeal language stripped out of the defense bill so he is not forced to take an on-the-record vote against funding the troops, and he wants the Democrats to give in to his outrageous demands."

"We have to stand up against this bullying. Repeal advocates must urge their senators to call up the defense bill as reported out of the Armed Services Committee and pass it before the Senate goes home for the year, and it is important that repeal supporters in Ohio and Indiana do so this week,” he added.

Major General Dennis J. Laich and Major Mike Almy, both discharged, spoke in Dayton, Ohio and Laich also scheduled to speak in Bloomington, Indiana, during a rally on Thursday (more informationmore information).
