  US Army Gives Up Effort to Kick-Out Gay ex-LDS Arizona Legislator
Steve May, a gay former LDS Church member serving in the Arizona state legislature, learned Monday that the US Army has dropped its attempt to kick May out of the Army Reserves under its "don't ask, don't tell" policy. The decision ends a 21-month-long effort by the Army to remove May after his sexual orientation came to light.

At least one of its current six congressmen, which includes LDS Church member Ernest Istook, will not be in the US Congress in 2002.
