"The votes in the Senate Committee and on the House floor to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" constitute one of the most important advances in our fight against prejudice based on sexual orientation. A very few years from now, it will be clear that the fears expressed by our
opponents arguments were totally without foundation. I particularly want to express my admiration and great appreciation to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, and Representative Patrick Murphy, for their extraordinary leadership in bringing this about."
-- Representative Barney Frank in a statement sent to Bilerico Project on the passage of Congressman Patrick Murphy's amendment to the House Defense Authorization bill repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
