Senator Claire McCaskill stands up for survivors

CLAIREAfter Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill put a hold on to Lieutenant General Susan Helms’ nomination to be vice commander of the Air Force Space Command because of her involvement in an unfair military sexual assault case, McCaskill was accused of participating in the so-called “war on men.” She had a lot to say in response to that, including:

My colleagues and I are fighting not to criminalize men, but to bring the cowards who commit sexual assault to justice. And our fight won’t stop until we give the brave men and women of our military the resources and justice they deserve.
