Will Lisa vote for the Don't Ask, Don't Tell repeal?

The word from DC is that Senator Murkowski is considering voting for the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, the military ban against openly serving gays and lesbians. LGR wrote that Murkowski is listening:
Our DC staffer is on the Hill right now, and according to Senator Murkowski's staff, the Senator is more than willing to listen to the calls. Her official phone number is (202) 224-6665, though the Senate can be reached via (202) 224-3121. LGBT Alaskans should call her and ask for her to vote for the repeal and to start and end debate over this.
By 9 p.m. on Monday, Lisa's DC voicemail box was full for the day. If it's full on Tuesday, call her Anchorage office at 907-271-3735, Fairbanks at 907-456-0233 or toll free in Alaska at 1-877-829-6030. Her email contact form is HERE.

Lisa announced a write-in campaign on Friday against the Palin-endorsed Joe Miller and Democrat Scott McAdams. She has only 6 weeks (and a few more for the recount?) as Alaska's Republican senator - after that, either she will be our write-in senator or she will be unemployed.

Voting for the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" would be one way for her to declare her independent status in Congress and get back at the GOP leaders who are lining up to support Miller.

The Senate cloture vote on DADT is scheduled for Tuesday. Alaska has an unexpected opportunity to help repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and stop the filibuster. Let's make the most of it.

Call Senator Murkowski today at (202) 224-6665 or toll free in Alaska at 1-877-829-6030 and ask her to vote for the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
