House vote on DADT repeal pending

Posted on 27 May 2010 at 7:42pm

As of 8:40 p.m. Dallas time, we’re awaiting the official recording of a House vote on an amendment that would begin the process of repealing “don’t ask don’t tell.”

The vote was called in favor of the ayes, meaning the amendment passed preliminarily, but opponents have requested a recorded vote. As soon as the official tally comes in — which should be less than 30 minutes from now — we’ll post a story over on the main page.

Again, you can watch the House proceedings live by going here. And see our coverage of an earlier vote by the Senate Armed Services Committee below.

Even assuming that the proposal has indeed passed the House, it will still need to pass the full Senate, and some Republicans are threatening a filibuster.
