An Obama administration has told The Advocate that the administration is in talks with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT), who sits on the Armed Services Committee, about repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell.
Lieberman has opposed the policy -- which prohibits openly gay servicemen and women in the military -- since its inception in 1993, said a spokeswoman from his office, who confirmed that he is speaking with the White House.
According to the official, Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management John Berry, the goal is to introduce legislation into the Senate that will get bipartisan support.
A bill to repeal the policy was introduced in the House this spring.
President Obama repeated his campaign promise to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell over the weekend in an address to the Human Rights Campaign, a major gay rights organization.
