Report: Reid to Include ‘Don‘t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Repeal in Vote Next Week


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid will include language repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” on a major defense budget bill scheduled to go for a vote next week, reports the Washington Blade. A Senate leadership aide explained that Reid imagines the bill might face a filibuster on its way to the floor, and hopes that he has the 60 votes necessary to overcome one. [Washington Blade]
