Federal Judge Orders The Reinstatement Of Lesbian Air Force Major Major Margaret Witt

Federal Judge Judge Ronald Leighton of Tacoma, Washington has ordered the reinstatement of an openly lesbian former Air Force  Maj. Margaret Witt, who was discharged under DAD\T stating “Her discharge from the Air Force Reserves violated her substantive due process rights under the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution. She should be restored to her position as a Flight Nurse with the 446th AES as soon as is practicable,”

This is another legal and political setback for the Obama administration, which is seeking to end the policy through a legislative and executive solution and is ttill defending it in the courts.

Thnak you Judge Lieghton, Congratulations Major Witt, and FUCK YOU Obama Administration!
