(CNSNews.com) - Wasting no time to raise funds, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is selling a photo of President Obama signing the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The legislation eventually will end the military's ban on openly homosexual troops. 

"Ending this discriminatory policy is truly a monumental achievement," the DSCC wrote just hours after Obama signed the bill before a large and appreciative audience on Wednesday.

Supporters of the legislation are urged to "celebrate the repeal" by purchasing an unframed print for $25 or a "beautiful framed version" for $50.

The DSCC's fund-raising pitch calls the end of DADT "the biggest civil rights victory in years. It’s an example of America living up to our highest ideals of equality and fairness."

"Commemorate the event in your home or office," the email says.
 
The message was signed by J.B. Poersch, the DSCC's executive director.
