MENENDEZ COMMENTS ON REPEALING "DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL"

Robert MenendezOver the weekend, the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” passed the U.S. Senate by a 65-31 vote. U.S. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) voted in favor of the measure and released the following statement:

“This is an important step for civil rights and for national security. Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is a ridiculous notion, a bad policy and a relic of a bygone era. Repealing it will keep our national defense strong by keeping good people in the military who want to serve. It is clearly time to end a blatantly discriminatory policy that is making us less secure and keeping good men and women from honorably serving this nation.”
