(Newser) – One more chance for opponents of Don't Ask, Don't Tell: The House voted 250-175 to repeal the ban on gays in the military, reports the Washington Post. The measure's fate once again lies with the Senate, but there's no guarantee Harry Reid will have enough time to bring it up for a vote in the lame-duck session because Republicans insist on clearing tax-cut and other legislation first.
