Michelle Benecke of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network told a crowd of supporters that ''Don't Ask, Don't Tell is a lie.'' She appeared alongside Aubrey Sarvis, Sergeant Jared Towner and others to protest the failure of the US Senate to repeal the continued ban against gay and lesbian servicemembers.
