Gillibrand Vows to Sponsor Repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’

There’s been no small amount of confusion and consternation among active liberals about why Kirsten Gillibrand, Charles Schumer, or some other Democratic senator wasn’t sponsoring legislation to repeal the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy that prevents gay Americans from serving in the military.

This morning, Gillibrand went on the Huffington Post and said it’s “time to repeal DADT.”

She wrote, “I am firmly committed to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. To that end, I am working closely with Congressman Murphy and Senator Kennedy’s offices to develop support for repeal legislation and will be among the original co-sponsors of the bill when it’s introduced.”

The evolution, it seems, is complete. Gillibrand Vows to Sponsor Repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’
