Maybe she should change her name to Lobbyist Gaga?
Pop star Lady Gaga is slated to headline a rally in Maine today that is designed to pressure the two moderate Republican senators there, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, to support the military’s repeal of Don’t Ask Dont Tell policy for gays in the armed services.
The Senate is taking up a defense bill tomorrow and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid slipped in repeal of DADT into the bill. There are not yet 60 supporters who have signed on, and both Collins and Snowe are undecided.
Lady Gaga has been phoning and twittering the offices of both Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer on the measure.
