Pete Sessions votes "no" to repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell

No big surprise here, but Pete Sessions voted no on the House amendment to repeal the 1993 "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy regarding gays and lesbians in the military.

The vote to repeal passed the House 234-194, with Sessions joining all but 9 Republicans in casting dissenting votes.
