The office of the senator leading the charge to change how the military handles sexual assaults says Jane Neubauer’s case shows why reform is needed.
The story of Airman Jane Neubauer, who was allegedly raped and then hung out to dry by the Air Force, is one of many that show why Congress must reform the way sexual assault cases are handled by the military. Two leading advocates for military-sexual assault reform reacted to Neubauer’s story and discussed the Senate vote expected this week on the issue.
Two competing bills, from senators Claire McCaskill and Kirsten Gillibrand, are scheduled for “side-by-side votes that will allow either or both measures to proceed if they muster the 60 votes required to overcome a filibuster.”
