Ehlers Votes to Repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell

One of those real old-school Republicans was our Vern. Gonna make Amash look like a real wingnutty wingnut. Not that that would be hard to do or anything.

U.S. Rep. Vern Ehlers is one of only 15 House Republicans to vote for repealing the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy for gays in the military. Now all eyes are on the Senate where Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe is the latest to say she would vote for repeal.

I believe this might make it through. It had better, because it won't come up through Congress again for at least another two years.

Thank you Congressman Ehlers. You did the right thing here, and it is appreciated.
