In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Discharged Dan Choi To Harry Reid: 'It's Not About Me Anymore' (VIDEO)


The repeal passed the House and is now pending in the Senate. Lawmakers hope to attach it to the Defense Authorization measure likely to be debated this fall, but in an election year where control of Congress is at stake, it's unclear if the measure will make it.

Watch what happened today at Reid's speech:

Sources at the convention told TPM that Reid aides weren't happy about Choi's interruption and felt it was unfair to confront him on stage since they were on the same side of the issue.

TPM caught up with Choi shortly after the stunt during Reid's panel.

"It's not about me," Choi said. He said that Reid (D-NV) had presented him with a choice on the stage today. Choi said Reid asked, "What do you want, ENDA (Employment Nondiscrimination Act) or Don't Ask, Don't Tell? ... In my mind I'm thinking discrimination is discrimination."
