Listen: Demanding Action on DADT

Today on the show I read Nathaniel Frank's hard--hitting and important piece charging President Obama and the Human Rights Campaign with stalling on repeal of "don't ask, don't tell." We took calls from many people who were responding to the blog swarm and also the general criticism of HRC. Some of them were long-time members and donors to the group. Some had become fed up even before the blog swarm.

One of them was Earl in St. Petersburg, Florida, who last week decided to stop giving his automatic payment of $250 per month to the group because of HRC's inaction in taking on the White House. The blog swarm only confirmed for him that he made the right decision. Below is a clip from his call today.
