United States Air Force "Flip-Flops" And Reverses Decision To Discharge Lesbian Under DADT

The U.S. Air Force has reversed its initial decision to not discharge Lt. Robin Chaurasiya under DADT after she revealedthat she is gay. Her case has been reviewed once again and she will indeed be discharged from the military.
From The LA Times:

“Chaurasiya’s said her case began in July after a male former officer she once dated had provided her commanding officer with evidence that she was a lesbian. The Air Force dismissed that complaint. But afterward, Chaurasiya, feeling slighted, decided to declare that she was a lesbian. In December, she and her partner were joined in a civil union in New Hampshire.

A subsequent Air Force investigation found credible evidence she was a lesbian, but determined she had declared her sexual orientation in an attempt to get out of military service. The general in charge refused to remove her.

The Air Force on Monday suggested the decision to discharge her resulted from new evidence. Chaurasiya said her partner was interviewed to determine if their civil union was real.”

So there you have it.
