Harry Reid and Lady Gaga's bad romance

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2010/images/09/14/art.gagatweet.0914.twitter.jpg caption =" Lady Gaga sent a tweet to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday."](CNN) - Pop singer Lady Gaga engaged in a back-and-forth Tuesday with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Twitter over the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

Gaga encouraged her flocks of fans on Twitter to call upon Reid to schedule a Senate vote on the policy.

"Gay Veterans were my VMA dates. Repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell," Gaga tweeted on Tuesday. "CALL HARRY REID to Schedule Senate Vote."

A repeal would end the Clinton-era policy that prevents gay Americans from openly serving in the military.

The problem? The vote is already scheduled for next week. And, Reid actually supports the repeal.
