LCR announces GOP Congressman supports bill to repeal "don't ask don't tell"
Log Cabin Republicans announced (on March 17) that is has acquired the signature of Joseph Cao (R-LA, district 02) as a cosponsor of the Military Readiness Enhancement Act (HR 1283), which would repeat the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy for gays in the military.
Cao said ““I am proud to stand with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in support of a repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ Our military commanders at the Pentagon believe it is time to proceed with dismantling this flawed policy, and I am happy put my name on this legislation, as well as to continue to work alongside Log Cabin Republicans as we speak to our Republican colleagues about the merits of repealing the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly in our armed forces.”
