Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill says the latest incident involving an Army sergeant provides more ammunition for the push to reform how the military handles sexual complaints.
The latest incident involves a solider at Ft. Hood in Texas.
The solider was part of Fort Hood’s Sexual Harassment and Assault Prevention and Response program.
“If these allegations are proven, then now is the time for our military leaders to reevaluate who is being put into these positions. Are folks filling these jobs who aren’t succeeding elsewhere? Or are these jobs being given to our best leaders?
McCaskill is on the senate armed Forces Committee. She has been pushing for reforms in the military code of justice program because of problems with the way the military handles sexual assault cases.
