This week, game-changing votes in the U.S. House and Senate could make or break the fate of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT) repeal efforts in 2010. Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA) is expected to offer an amendment to the House version of the Defense Authorization bill that would overturn DADT. Similar action is also expected in the Senate Armed Services Committee on May 26.
The fight for this repeal in 2010 hangs in the balance. A few votes could make the difference between victory and defeat. Each Representative’s vote will count.
