WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on congressional efforts to move ahead with a vote on repeal of ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' Graham is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
"I do not support the idea of repealing Don't Ask, Don't Tell before our military members and commanders complete their review. This so-called compromise would repeal the legislation first then receive input from the military. This is not the proper way to change any policy, particularly something as controversial as Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
