Video: Watch Lady Gaga Call Sen. Chuck Schumer Regarding Don't Ask, Don't Tell

she has posted decrying the U.S. military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.

She points people to the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network site "slash Gaga," and she actually places a call to New York U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer's office, which proves to be a bit uncomfortable (see below).
