Log Cabin Republicans Applaud Filing of Second "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Challenge
Statement by Log Cabin President Patrick Guerriero
(Washington, DC) – "Log Cabin Republicans applaud Service Members Legal Defense Network for filing a lawsuit seeking to overturn the ban on gays and lesbians being able to serve openly in our military. Log Cabin, represented by the global law firm of White and Case, filed suit to overturn this policy in October in federal court in Los Angeles. We welcome any challenge to this blatantly discriminatory policy that serves only to weaken our national security and undermine our military preparedness.
Public opinion, the experience of our allies, and the national security interests of our nation all lead to the inescapable conclusion that gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve openly and honestly in our military."
