Congresswoman Baldwin vs Condoleezza....

Press Release: Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)
has challenged Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice about
reported inequities in employment practices concerning
gay & lesbian employees & their partners in the State
Department & requested immediate remedial changes.
Baldwin Stated in a letter sent to Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice: “We have followed with great interest & concern the media
coverage of the workplace inequities facing gays & lesbians in
the U.S. Department of State. As in the case of Former Ambassador
to Romania Michael Guest, the inequitable treatment of gay &
lesbian Foreign Service Officers (FSOs) & their partners should
not be allowed to lead highly qualified employees to leave the State
Department at a time when their service is needed more than ever.
Many of these inequities could clearly be remedied through your
leadership as Secretary, without legislative changes. We write to
highlight basic & common-sense policy changes that beg your
prompt attention & ask that you act to make eliminating inequities
facing gays & lesbians @ the State Department a priority.”
So now it's Condoleezza's move.....Updates to come..... :)
