GetEQUAL & Discharged Gay Vets Descend On Senator Harry Reid’s Office and Demand Answers on ‘DADT Repeal’. Gets NONE

This morning Dan Choi, Jim Pietrangelo, Autumn Sandeen, and 9  GetEQUAL activists have gone to Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid’s office to ask for an audience with Reid and get some answers about whats going on with DADT.

You’ll remember that Choi made headlines at Netroots Nation in Las Vegas when he approached Senator Harry Reid on-stage at a main conference event and gave his West Point cadet ring to Senator Harry Reid. At that time, Senator Reid – in front of this large crowd of progressive/liberal bloggers and activists, Senator Reid promised Dan that he would return the ring by the end of this year when the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy is repealed. Dan’s question to Senator Reid – ‘can I expect my ring back this year or not?'”

Reid did not have an answer.

According to the latest Tweets from GetEqual Reid Reid had absolutely no answers for them and that The White House has not even talked with Reid’s office yet about about further movement on the DADT repeal.

This is how much our country cares about its LGBT soilders and citizens. 

Have we had enough of this shit yet?
