Toomey Worries About Sex Abuse Scandal

05.27.13 | Bob Price

 PENNSYLVANIA SENATOR PAT TOOMEY IS SPONSORING LEGISLATION TO MAKE SURE MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES WHO ARE GUILTY OF SEXUAL HARRASSMENT AND ASSAULT DO NOT GO UN-PUNISHED.
HIS BILL INCREASES AIDE TO VICTIMS AND APPLIES HARSHER PENALTIES TO THEIR ATTACKERS.
LAST YEAR, LESS THAN 35-HUNDRED OF THE ESTIMATED 26-THOUSAND CASES OF ASSAULT AND ABUSE  IN THE MILITARY WERE EVER REPORTED.
 TOOMEY'S BILL PROVIDES THOSE WHO ARE ATTACKED WITH A SPECIAL VICTIMS’ COUNSEL AND AUTOMATICALLY REFERES ASSAULT CASES TO A COURT-MARTIAL LEVEL.
