UPDATE: Hagel Promises To Extend Benefits To Gay Families

By January 16, 2013

Follow me on:

Chuck Hagel's past position on LGBT rights isn't stellar, but he's Obama's pick which seems to be the reason why prominents Barney Frank and HRC gave their endorsement for his confirmation. Hagel has been working diligently to convince us that his past should stay there, but many remain skeptical.

However, Hagel may be making good on his promises of support. In a letter to Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Hagel affirmed his support for the repeal of DADT and promised to extend benefits to the families of gay and lesbian service members.

Are they empty promises? Again, we'll have to wait and see.
