Please take a look at the message below and pick up the phone / join the conversation on Twitter as this will be coming for a vote TOMORROW – let's make sure Scott Brown knows how many people will be even more excited to campaign against him if he keeps failing to represent our values!
This message comes for Private First Class and Young Democrats of Massachusetts Secretary Joe Lazzerini…
In addition to being a fellow Young Democrat, I am also proud to serve our country in the Army Reserves; unfortunately, my service is in the hands of Scott Brown, who is standing in the way of the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.” This past weekend, I was notified that I am under investigation for “Homosexual Misconduct” which is going to ultimately lead to a discharge under Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
I need your help. Please take a moment right now to call Senator Brown in Boston at 617-565-3170 and in Washington, DC at 202-224-4543 and encourage him to support the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.” Then, sign the Twitter petition.
This week the Senate Armed Services Committee is expecting take a crucial vote to attach DADT repeal legislation to the Defense Authorization Budget, legislation that is going to finally after 17 years allow gays and lesbians to serve openly and honestly in the United States Armed Services. Scott Brown sits on this committee and said today he would vote against this measure, so we need to act now!
With 77% of Massachusetts in favor of repeal and 65,000 service members forced to live in the closet or to leave the service, this can't wait any longer. Please call and tweet Scott Brown right now:
- Boston office: 617-565-3170
- Washington, DC office: 202-224-4543
- Sign the Twitter petition
Your help is needed so desperately for me, and for 65,000 other GLB service members currently serving in the Armed Forces. Please act now, time is running out.
