Joe Lieberman to Inroduce "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal Today

Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) will introduce a bill today calling for the repeal of "Don't, Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) The Advocate's Kerry Elveld reports:
The legislation, called the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2010, would repeal the 1993 law that banned lesbian and gay soldiers from serving openly in the military and replace it with a policy that prohibits discrimination against service members on the basis of their sexual orientation. Lieberman explained that the nondiscrimination provision would make the change “more permanent legislatively,” so a future administration couldn’t revert back to something akin to “don’t ask, don’t tell” by executive action.
