Sen. Lindsey Graham: The Votes Are Not There For The Repeal Of DADT

GOP closet case Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) said yesterday that there are not enough Senate votes for a repeal of DADT.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Sunday the Senate likely doesn't have enough Republican votes during Congress' lame-duck session to lift the ban on gays serving openly in the military. "I think in a lame-duck setting, 'don't ask, don't tell' is not going anywhere," Mr. Graham, South Carolina Republican, said on "Fox News Sunday." The statement puts renewed pressure on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, who has vowed to call for a full Senate vote on the issue before the congressional session ends at Christmas break.
Democrats need two GOP votes in order to block a filibuster on DADT.
