DEMOCRATS WANT TO REPEAL “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL”
WASHINGTON (CNN) — House Democrats renewed their push Tuesday to
overturn the ban on gays and lesbian soldiers serving openly in the
U.S. military, introducing legislation repealing the controversial
“don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
The House previously passed a repeal of the ban as part of a larger
defense spending authorization bill, but the measure stalled last week
in the Senate.
