Well this is just pathetic.


Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) stripped a measure proposed by fellow Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) that would have taken sexual assault reporting out of the chain of command out of a defense spending bill on Tuesday.

Gillibrand’s bill, which had 27 co-sponsors — four of which were Republicans, was opposed by military personnel as well as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. The bill also received lukewarm support from Democratic leadership. Levin promised an alternative measure that would allow other commanders to review cases of sexual assault.


Raw Story

We know the problem is rampant in the military and it seems that our ' arm chair ' generals think it's still a good idea to keep chain of command. Clearly doing something the same exact way we've been doing it will solve the problem right?

Well you can't sweep sexual assault under the rug when it gets out of the ranks. The women in his district should remember this when election time rolls around.

I certainly hope they do.

It's beyond me how this is even still an issue. I can't imagine what other ideas these people have that are better than the ones proposed.
