Lieberman to lead ending of “don’t ask, don’t tell”…

Lieberman to lead ending of “don’t ask, don’t tell” according to Kerry Eleveld writing on the Advocate.com. Elevard wrote a spokesman for Independent Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, “confirmed that the senator had been speaking to the White House about the bill.” Senator Lieberman’s press secretary said the Senator, “...has opposed [don’t ask don’t tell] since it was first proposed in 1993.”

The article says, “Lieberman is generally seen as a strong candidate for carrying the bill given his position on the Armed Services Committee and his strong engagement with the military.”

The article also says Senator Lieberman may try and get one of the liberal Republican Senators from Maine to co-sponsor the bill.
