39 members of the House of Representatives wrote a letter [pdf] this week to President Obama calling on him not to appeal the recent decision calling the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law unconstitutional. The group was led by openly gay Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO).
The call echos our continuing efforts to end the ban on lesbian, gay and bisexual service members and our letter to Attorney General Eric Holder [pdf] calling on him not to appeal the case. Additionally, HRC has called on our members and supporters to petition Holder to decline to appeal the case. Add your name now!
