Gillibrand gets support from GOP senators on sexual assault proposal

1

Republican Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Charles Grassley of Iowa are supporting a proposal by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York to change the way the military handles sexual assault cases.
Gillibrand has scheduled a 10 a.m. news conference to announce that 34 senators are cosponsoring her proposal to take the decision whether to prosecute sexual assaults out of the hands of the military chain of command. Her proposal, which failed to gain majority support on the Senate Armed Services Committee, is expected to come up for a floor vote when the Senate debates the 2014 National Defense Authorization Act. That could happen as early as next week.

  1. What a way to extend Respects to The Armed Forcés of The United States!” Reading this news is making My Mind Bogging how convient it is for many to do what is a general practice acting or enjoying ” willingly” and ” at times unwillingly” hence this Press Conference!

    “Republican Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Charles Grassley of Iowa are supporting a proposal by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York to change the way the military handles sexual assault cases…”

    Our Country doesn’t need “Proposals” of “Political Party Agendas” with Dealing with The Topics of Such Magnitude and Significance PARTICULARLY where the Honor of Women is being put on stake and demoralizing of their Respect at all times. Women must be Respected! We needs Laws of The United States and The Constitution ( again not Anyone’s Proposals ) And. Lets not get too carried away! Respect The Command and The Officers

    What needs it to resist from blowing what transpired our of Propotions for Self-Promotions!

    We need an independent solution without Political Ambitions with full Respect and Participation of Oué Commanders of The Armed Forces with Civilian Appointmented SOD!

    We all must stand in Front of a Mirror and ask who is going to ” take on pointing the Finger at Our Nations Armed Forces exclusively?.

    Where is this all coming from and all of where?

    Why this Press Conference?
