Lady Gaga’s bid to force U.S. politicians to repeal the military’s ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy with regard to gay servicemen and women has failed – the Senate has voted against starting a debate on a new bill.
The pop superstar has been very outspoken against the policy in recent weeks and appeared at a rally in Maine on Monday to further campaign against the ongoing military cover-up.

But, despite gaining a lot of publicity and turning heads in Washington, D.C., Gaga’s efforts have been thwarted.

A Republican-led filibuster blocked efforts to repeal the ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy on gays serving openly in the military on Tuesday.
