Rep. Frank to LC's Billington: Do the Right Thing
In 2005, Diane Schroer (formerly David Schroer), a former Army Special Forces commander, was offered a terrorism research analyst position with LC's Congressional Research Service but was later denied the position when she announced her plans to live as a woman. On Friday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that LC discriminated against her. LC now has the opportunity to appeal.
According to The Hill, Rep. Frank has written to the Librarian of Congress, Dr. James Billington, urging LC not to appeal the the court's decision. Billington, by the way, was responsible for denying Schroer the job. Shame on you. [JH]
