Gaga Loses Fight To Repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy
Lady GaGa's bid to force U.S. politicians to repeal the military's 'Don't ask, don't tell' policy with regard to gay servicemen and women has failed - the Senate has voted against starting a debate on a new bill.
The pop superstar has been very outspoken against the policy in recent weeks and appeared at a rally in Maine on Monday (20Sep10) to further campaign against the ongoing military cover-up.
But, despite gaining a lot of publicity and turning heads in Washington, D.C., Gaga's efforts have been thwarted.
A Republican-led filibuster blocked efforts to repeal the 'Don't ask, don't tell' policy on gays serving openly in the military on Tuesday (21Sep10).
