Gillibrand’s quest for military justice

Artist Adam Zyglis (The Buffalo Post) depicts Senator Gillibrand in her efforts to change military policy.

Senator Kristin Gillibrand of New York has been working for 3 years to pass a bill that would shift the prosecution of military sexual assaults to military lawyers, and out of the hands of the military chain of command.  Gillibrand’s website gives all the details on the legislation, including the Gillibrand Report, which details assault data from the four largest US military bases.  NBC News has some recent coverage.
