Tammy Baldwin appeals to Barack Obama

“In the eyes of the law, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans are not yet equal to their fellow citizens, and simply put, this cannot stand. I ask that you use the power of your office and your confidence in our Constitution to lead us toward full equality.” — Representative Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) in a letter to President-Elect Barak Obama.
