Obama's Department of Justice Demands No Injunction of Enforcement of Dont Ask Dont Tell

This is in no way surprising, given President Obama's lack of leadership on repealing the policy. Though he technically has to defend the current law and appeal the judges ruling, we are seeing just how much he has used LGBT americans for political gains...

From the Advocate...

The Department of Justice asked a federal judge Thursday to continue enforcing the military's ban on gay and lesbian service members, despite a ruling earlier this month that struck down "don't ask, don't tell" as unconstitutional.

In a 14-page filing, Justice Department attorneys argued that an immediate, permanent injunction against enforcing the law —one supported by Log Cabin Republicans, which successfully challenged DADT in court and has argued for a halt to all discharges of gay service members — would be "untenable."

The text of the Department of Justices legal filing can be found here.
