Lady GaGa's Effort to Repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy Thwarted
Lady GaGa's bid to force U.S. politicians to repeal the military's 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy with regard to gay servicemen and women has failed - the Senate has voted against starting a debate on a new bill. The pop superstar has been very outspoken against the policy in recent weeks and appeared at a rally in Maine on Monday, September 20 to further campaign against the ongoing military cover-up.
But, despite gaining a lot of publicity and turning heads in Washington, D.C., GaGa's efforts have been thwarted. A Republican-led filibuster blocked efforts to repeal the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy on gays serving openly in the military on Tuesday, September 21.
During the rally, which was organized by The Service Members Legal Defence Network, in Maine, GaGa stated, "I'm here today because I would like to propose a new law. A law which sends home the solider which has the problem. Our new law is called, 'If you don't like it, go home'."
