Log Cabin Republicans deliver on what Obama couldn't (or wouldn't)

The Gay Republican group, The Log Cabin Republicans, were one of two plaintiffs in a case calling for an immediate injunction so the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in the US armed services could no longer be used against any U.S. military personnel anywhere in the world.

They were successful today when U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ruled in their favor.

She said the Log Cabin Republicans "established at trial that the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Act irreparably injures servicemembers by infringing their fundamental rights." She said the policy violates due process rights, freedom of speech and the right to petition the government for redress of grievances guaranteed by the First Amendment.
