Two national gay GOP groups, Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud, both blamed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) for today’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” failure.
The Senate voted today on whether to move forward with the 2011 Defense Authorization bill which included language that would have allowed President Barack Obama to repeal DADT after the completion of a Pentagon study on the military’s gay ban.
Both groups posted messages via Twitter after today’s vote.
The gay left doesnt have to like it, but the reality is Harry Reid KILLED DADT repeal by rejecting the agmt to allow a vote #tcot
Log Cabin Republicans
Many Republicans, including Senate Armed Services Committee ranking member Senator John McCain, opposed to today’s vote based on the procedure in which Democrats would allow amendments to be added to the bill.
“I’m not opposed to having full and informed debate on whether to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” McCain said prior to today’s vote.
