Booted Gay Soldier Takes On Nancy Pelosi

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has some ‘splaining to do!

Former American soldier Jason Knight, who was booted under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, submitted this video to CNN’s Situation Room asking Pelosi what she intends to do about the discriminatory policy.

In an effort to build his case, Knight reminds Pelosi that she defended lesbian lawmaker Tammy Baldwin’s right to bring her lover on Congressional trips. Why, then, can’t she stand up for gay military men and women?

Pelosi appears on the show tonight, so she has some time to think of a measured – and hopefully progressive – response.
