House Democrats Who Defend Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Are Mostly Lame Ducks

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation to end the discriminatory policy of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, which requires the military to fire homosexual soldiers, regardless of their professional qualifications. 15 Democrats crossed the aisle to defend the discrimination and vote NO.

What’s remarkable about this group of anti-gay Democrats in the House is that most of them have been politically unable to hold their seats. Out of the 15 Democrats who crossed the aisle on the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell repeal, only six have managed to keep their seats.

They are:

Dan Boren – Returning
Bobby BrightOut
Travis ChildersOut
Mark Critz – Returning
Artur DavisOut
Lincoln DavisOut
Jim MarshallOut
Mike McIntyre – Returning
Solomon OrtizOut
Collin Peterson – Returning
Nick Rahall – Returning
Mike Ross – Returning
Ike SkeltonOut
John TannerOut
Gene TaylorOut

  2. I will actively campaign against Rahall. He must go – as should Capito, Manchin, & Rockefeller. They have been away from WV TOO LONG to know what the people want.
