More news on Anthony Woods, the West Point graduate who earned the Bronze Star serving in Iraq and was discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Woods is running in a special election to replace the outgoing Representative Ellen Tauscher. In addition to a new profile at Advocate.com, CNN's Campbell Brpwn interviewed the congressional candidate to discuss the military's failed "Don't Ask" policy.
Woods tells CNN: "I was extremely frustrated with the idea of lying about who I was. I thought it was very important for people who disagree with the policy to take a stand and say they were not going to lie anymore. I knew it was going to cost me my career. I knew it would cost me the opportunity to teach at West Point. ... Ultimately I think it was the right decision to do to get rid of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. It hurts our country and is not good for our country."
