DADT Repealed

As expected, the Senate has voted to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, clearing the way for gay soldiers to serve openly in the military.  The final total in favor of repeal included eight Republicans: Scott Brown of Massachusetts, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Richard Burr of North Carolina, George Voinovich of Ohio, and John Ensign of Nevada.

 

After President Obama signs the bill, which is expected to happen next week, the new policy will take effect in 60 days.
