Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

I ‘will be among the original co-sponsors of the bill when it’s introduced’

SOUNDBITES — “I am firmly committed to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. To that end, I am working closely with Congressman Murphy and Senator Kennedy’s offices to develop support for repeal legislation and will be among the original co-sponsors of the bill when it’s introduced. In the weeks and months ahead, I plan to work with Lt. Choi to repair the damage that has been done to his career and spare thousands of innocent, brave men and women, from the same injustice.” —New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, voicing her support for gays in the military. We asked Gillibrand’s office what, specifically, she is doing to honor her “firm commitment” to repealing DADT; we’ll let you know if we hear an answer.
