Congresswoman Jackie Speier on Military Rape (#12)

 

Congresswoman Jackie Speier gave her 12th floor speech on military rape and sexual assault today. She talked about Col. Michael Robertson who was convicted of 14 charges. His punishment? A $30,000 fine and 3 months in jail. He’ll be allowed to retire with full rank and benefits, but won’t be required to register as a sex offender. Indefensible!

On Thursday, November 17, 2011, Speier will introduce legislation and announce a campaign to combat sexual violence in the military. She will hold a press conference at 9:45 am ET at the National Press Club in Washington DC with Nancy Parish, President of Protect Our Defenders, and military rape victims.
