Cindy McCain: ‘I Stand by My Husband’s Stance on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’


Cindy McCain appeared in a video for the NOH8 Campaign this week, saying, “Our political and religious leaders tell LGBT youth that they have no future … They can’t serve our country openly … Our government treats the LGBT community like second-class citizens, why shouldn’t [the bullies]?” But yesterday evening, she tweeted: “I fully support the NOH8 campaign and all it stands for and am proud to be a part of it. But I stand by my husband’s stance on DADT.” Her husband, senator John McCain, led the GOP filibuster that prevented Congress from voting on a “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal, thus telling LGBT youth that they can’t serve their country openly, as Cindy so eloquently put it only a few days ago. Did John and Cindy have some sort of “talk”? Sigh.
