Republicans obviously don’t have a lock on immoral legislative maneuvers to satisfy war contractors. Here’s what you need to know:
An amendment that would prevent the government from working with contractors who denied victims of assault the right to bring their case to court is in danger of being watered down or stripped entirely from a larger defense appropriations bill.
The Senate is considering taking out a provision known as the Title VII claim, which (if removed) would allow victims of assault or rape to bring suit against the individual perpetrator but not the contractor who employed him or her.
In what world is preventing someone who was raped the right to a court case a bad thing? There’s being a war contractor lackey and then there’s this. This defies explanation or excuse. It’s sickening.
