McCain Demands, Gets Televised DADT Vote

McCain Demands, Gets Televised DADT Vote


Sen. John McCain has asked that the Senate Armed Services Committee vote to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" be in open session.

The vote is expected to be broadcast this afternoon on C-SPAN.

According to Wonk Room, chairman Carl Levin has agreed to a televised vote and said it will take place sometime after lunch.

McCain, who at one time was thought to be on the fence about "don't ask, don't tell," has come out strongly against repeal in recent months. He's even talking filibuster if repeal passes.

"I'll do everything in my power," McCain said. "I'm going to do everything I can to support the men and women of the military and to fight what is clearly a political agenda."
