Description

Bernie Sanders, as a member of congress, stands up for homosexuals in this 1995 CSPAN clip. In the video, Duke Cunningham derisively refers to "homos in the military" and Rep. Sanders can't believe his ears. The exchanged occurred, bizarrely, while discussing the Clean Water Act at a time when "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" was the law of the land. This clip has been edited to truncate Rep. Cunningham's comments. If you'd like to hear his statement in its entirety you can do so here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOjDqS3FG_w
