...And the Senator Calls Back

BY Nancy Scola | Wednesday, September 15 2010

Or rather, the Senator posts a response video on YouTube. Remember Lauren and Ellie, the pair of Colorado college kids who fired up the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network's organizing tools, called their home-state Senator Michael Bennet to push him to oppose Don't Ask Don't Tell, and then recorded the whole thing in an video posted to YouTube?

Well, this being 2010, Bennet, naturally, posts a response video. Ben Smith has the 16-second video. Bennet tells Lauren and Ellen, "thanks for your advocacy," and then tells the pair that he does, indeed, already support the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
