Congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R) taped a special joint video message affirming their commitment to LGBT Equality including putting an end to Don't Ask Don't Tell and the helping repeal of Florida's anti-gay adoption ban.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz's is one of the highest profile members of Congress and represented the Democratic leadership on Larry King Live following the health care victory. It is wonderful that they teamed up to make this video demonstrating bipartisan passion for ending LGBT discrimination.

The two women were being honored at the Equality Florida 2010 Miami Gala. Debbie Wasserman Schultz's 6 year old and 10 year old daughters brought the house down as they accepted the award on their mother's behalf.

Your Boxb is a waste of my time I don't care. The reason that I wrote is because I am aware that there were 190 congresspersons as of 31 December 2009 the most recent count. If you know of more please add them if you don't then the count stands as I have written. Take Care I will not respond as I have more important things to take care of in my life.


Good for them. LGBT job protections are surprisingly bipartisan.
