Larry Craig wants to continue ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’»


Today, the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Military Personnel is holding the first congressional hearings on the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in 15 years. To mark the occasion, the conservative news outlet CNSNews.com asked some members of Congress if they still support the discriminatory program. Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), who was busted last year for allegedly trying to pick up another male in an airport bathroom, said that he believes “we ought to sustain it“:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) told CNSNews.com, “Current policy has served us well. I think we ought to sustain it. I see no evidence that it should be repealed.”

Thanks, Senator, for providing fodder for the internet and late-night TV in the "Stuff we couldn't make up" category!

11. "Served us well???" craig, just another right wing fucking lunatic
How does he know its served us well? Young Servicemembers wanting to serve their country living in fear. Yo Lar, straight drunks and spouse abusers and hot check writers and mediocre performers are allowed to serve openly. That has served us well huh Lar. Yeah, right wing utopia in every US Military Base and Ship on the planet. And for christs sake craig you don't even have a purty mouth. Christ I wish conservatives realized that it really does suck being them.
