Washington, Gillibrand_Senator_Kirsten-300dpi Don’t Tell” policy unconstitutional, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement:

“Judge Phillips’ ruling is a major step forward for our efforts to repeal this immoral and harmful policy.  I strongly hope that the ruling of this policy as unconstitutional will stand and that theDepartment of Justice will eventually choose not to appeal. President Obama has been an outspoken advocate for repeal and it would send a strong message if his justice department were to choose not to appeal. The decision should also serve as a call to action for Congress to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’

“Every American, no matter who you are or what you believe, has the God-given right to defend our country. No politician should rightly or lawfully stand in the way of that. Every U.S. Senator took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Now it’s time to do just that. 

“I am confident that we can bring the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ up for a vote on the Senate floor in the coming weeks, and I urge all of my colleagues to abide by the oath we all took, and end this policy that tears America’s moral fabric and hurts our military readiness.”

Kirsten Gillibrand is the United States Senator for New York.

  1. Suprise surprise a California judge ruled the law unconstitutional.Same state where 8 million voted for NO SAME SEX MARRIAGE and that was overturned by a judge from California.Maybe that is our first socialist state where the voters have no say.

  2. “Every U.S. Senator took an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. Now it’s time to do just that”????
    When are you going to start upholding the constitution?
    and stop being Chuck Schumer mouth piece.Stop jamming your Liberal ways down out throats.

  3. Hey Kristen wy dont you go jump back up on old Chucky Scuhs lap and let him put his hand up your back and you play puppet like you have been doing the last few years?

  4. Leave the military and our national defense out of your looney left social engineering,its the only federal agency that works.Living in a tent,barracks or on ship in close quarters sharing the same showering and sleeping facilities is all together different than working in a civilian office or on a construction site. The only good Democrat is a defeated Democrat.
