Sen. Joseph Lieberman promises to introduce repeal of "don't ask don't tell"
On Feb. 23, 2010 Senator Joe Lieberman published on his own blog his intention to introduce a bill into the US Senate to repeal “don’t ask don’t tell”. The blog post on “Joe’s Corner” is here. Actually, it’s tricky because that’s a re-post of an editorial from “CT-Post” (Connecticut Post), with the article (“Credit Lieberman on the repeal effort”) here. The editorial says bluntly “That means security suffers for the sake of discrimination.”
It will be interesting to see how he networks with Carl Levin, who suggested a return of the draft after 9/11. Lieberman has always been a hawk on national security.
The bill will not have an "S" number until actually introduced.
Update: March 3
Here is Senator Joseph Lieberman's press release on his introduction of the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2010, link here, cosponsored by Carl Levin. There is a link to a PDF file copy of the bill on his website.
I still can't find the S. number. It was 357 in 2009.
