Yesterday Sen. Scott Brown, who in 2001 described a lesbian couple’s decision to have children as “not normal”, has decided to vote against repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
Not at all a surprise.
On the very same day, Attorney General Martha Coakley continues her arguments to strike down the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.
From the Cornhusker state - Sen. Ben Nelson is now a yes vote on DADT repeal. From his statement:
“I don’t believe that most Nebraskans want to continue a policy that not only encourages but requires people to be deceptive and to lie. The ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy does just that...It also encourages suspicion and senior officers to look the other way. In a military which values honesty and integrity, this policy encourages deceit.”Pelosi is key to the DADT repeal.
Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey writes about his support of medical marijuana for veterans.
On a lighter note, while in China, Hillary dishes on Chelsea’s wedding plans.
