Rallying to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

A large crowd gathered in front of the Capitol today for the “Mission: Incomplete” rally for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Speakers urged Congress to stay in session until “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is repealed this year, and the crowd chanted “Don’t go home! Don’t go home!” to the senators.
