Call Out 30 GOP Senators Who Voted Against Rape Victims

1 post in this topic

Dear Senator,

I am appalled that you joined 29 of your male Republican colleagues in voting against Senator Al Franken's Defense Appropriations amendment that would prohibit federal defense contractors like Halliburton/KBR from getting money "if they restrict their employees from taking workplace sexual assault, battery and discrimination cases to court."

Senator Franken's floor speech referenced the story of Jamie Leigh Jones, who was gang-raped by her coworkers at Halliburton/KBR but was unable to bring charges in court because her employment contract stipulated sexual assault allegations could only be addressed in private.

This amendment was an important step in giving rights to rape victims -- and I am appalled that you would oppose it. This is taking obstructionism too far.
