Federal Hate Crimes Bill Dead

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Thu, Dec 6, 2007 at 12:50 PM

This news from 365 gay:

Thursday Senate conferees reluctantly agreed to strip the Shepard Act from the defense bill, realizing that they lack the votes to pass the measure.

In a private meeting Wednesday night, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Democratic Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) told Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., that if the Senate continued to insist on the hate crimes provision the defense legislation would fail.

It looks like next year isn't going to be a good one for gay issues either, with the election coming up.

Gays at the Mall … No, The Other Mall

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Fri, Nov 30, 2007 at 1:12 PM

From The Advocate:

Five LGBT advocacy groups placed 12,000 flags on Washington’s National Mall on Friday in an effort to recognize the 12,000 men and women who have been kicked out of the military because of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

The three-day tribute, “12,000 Flags for 12,000 Patriots,” was organized by the Human Rights Campaign, Log Cabin Republicans, Servicemembers United, Liberty Education Forum, and the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network in hopes of showing that the policy, enacted in 1993 under President Bill Clinton, wastes valuable resources available to the U.S. military.

Charleston Misses Debate Question on Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 1:17 PM

If you're a Comcast customer in the Charleston area, you missed the question and exchange at last night's YouTube debate on Don't Ask, Don't Tell.

There's some dust up today over the fact that the veteran asking the question is a supporter of Hillary Clinton, which really isn't the point.
