Jene Newsome played by the rules as an Air Force sergeant: She never told anyone in the military she was a lesbian.
The 28-year-olds honorable discharge under the dont ask, dont tell policy came only after police officers in Rapid City, S.D., saw an Iowa marriage certificate in her home and told the nearby Ellsworth Air Force Base.
Newsome and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint against the western South Dakota police department, claiming the officers violated her privacy when they informed the military about her sexual orientation. The case also highlights concerns over the ability of third parties to out service members, especially as the Pentagon has started reviewing the 1993 dont ask, dont tell law

“The 28-year-olds honorable discharge under the dont ask, dont tell”
Should have been a general discharge at best.

True. What discharge would she receive for violating policies against using narcotics? Would she get an "Honorable" if she committed adultery or beastiality?
Gay & lesbian news bores the hell out of me.
And here emerges the Obamunists excuse to end “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” and replace it with open acceptance of homosexuals in the military....
Me too, but the Alaska theft storyline was just too ridiculous for me to ignore.
Ya gotta love this little piece of Bob Doody, too.
Except that there will be no open acceptance of homosexuals in the military. The joint chiefs will delay a decision for as long as possible, but, if they retain an ounce of sanity between them, they will not implement allowing homosexuals into the military. Unit cohesiveness and combat effectiveness will be destroyed.
I thought homosexuals kicked out of the military did not receive honorable discharge.
I guess you are way more sophisticated than those of us concerned about the homosexual agenda ruining our culture. What a boring subject.
Strange he bothered to click on the thread. . .
I’ve been a lesbian in a man’s body my whole life. All the guys I served with were too, so it wasn’t a problem.
We were HOMOgenous, so to speak.
I don't see this as police misconduct. I do see this as a woman who thinks the world owes her. She got an honorable discharge. So, she get her benefits. She can get a nice, Federal job and all that time counts towards her retirement.
I don't feel sorry for her.
I did a search on “Palin” and did not see it. Can you show me where it is?

She should get a dishonorable discharge. So now taxpayers are going to be giving her money for the rest of her life?
I haven't seen the statistics in several years, but last I checked, most receive honorable discharges, followed closely by General, under honorable conditions. Less than 25% receive something worse than that. However, all their DD214s reflect there separation was based on homosexual activity, even when discharged honorably.
I know I’m setting myself up for angry attacks by expressing this opinion, but I’m going to express it anyway:
I believe that gender does matter. I believe that gay men in the military are a direct threat to the moral of the military, in a way that gay women are not.
As a guy who has prosecuted dozens of homosexuals for abhorrent conduct directly related to their homosexuality, I can promise you that a substantial percentage of those prosecutions were for lesbians.
The morale & discipline problems found in the homosexual female ranks are just as pronounced, just as corrosive and just as undermine to good order as those problems found in their male counterparts. Open homosexuality in the ranks will be just as damaging to the military when practiced by either men or women.
