While Lady Gaga And Thousands Rally In Maine To Repeal DADT, Olympia Snowe Seems To Be Towing The Republican Line And Voting No. (Lady Gaga Rally Video)

While Lady Gaga was rallying thousands or Mainers today to support the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine seems to be hinting at following the the Republican and Obama Administration Party line about waiting until a military review of the issue should be completed before the law is repealed.

“We should all have the opportunity to review that report which is to be completed on December 1, as we reevaluate this policy and the implementation of any new changes,” Snowe said in a written statement this afternoon

Interestingly enough Snowe  has a 78% positive rating by the HRC, indicating a pro-gay-rights stance in the past and  has voted YES on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation and voted NO on a constitutional ban of same-sex marriage. (Jun 2006), 

Snowe used to be one of the most decent Republican Senators there were.  But since Obama has taken office she has no backbone or guts any longer and falls into the Republican goosestep at the last minute. (With the exception of her Health Care vote on which she almost caved due to Republic pressure.)

With over 75 percent oif the country against DADT if the VOTE FAILS tomorrow, we have iron clad proof that Senators DO NOT listen to their constituents and our Government is truly broken.
