Ninety-six members of Congress have submitted a letter to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates requesting “don’t ask, don’t tell” discharge data, according to the Palm Center, a University of California, Santa Barbara think tank.  The request comes as those in favor of the repeal prepare for Congressional debates tentatively scheduled for 2010.

The letter, authored by Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) has also been signed by Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.), sponsor of the House DADT repeal bill.
