Total Scumbags: Police rat out Air Force Sgt.

Even if one abides by the DADT guidelines one could still get screwed. (via)
Jene Newsome played by the rules as an Air Force sergeant: She never told anyone in the military she was a lesbian. The 28-year-old's honorable discharge under the ''don't ask, don't tell'' policy came only after police officers in Rapid City, S.D., saw an Iowa marriage certificate in her home and told the nearby Ellsworth Air Force Base.

Newsome and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint against the western South Dakota police department, claiming the officers violated her privacy when they informed the military about her sexual orientation. The case also highlights concerns over the ability of third parties to ''out'' service members, especially as the Pentagon has started reviewing the 1993 ''don't ask, don't tell'' law.

''I played by 'don't ask, don't tell,''' Newsome told The Associated Press by telephone.

I read that story over the weekend and somebody in that police department, and at the base should hang.
