Which GOP Senators Oppose Full Justice for Gang Rape Victims?

no_fault_gang_rapeSince Jamie Lee Jones has told her story, and told it repeatedly, many more women have come forward with similar stories.

In a just and sane world, Franken’s amendment should have been a nobrainer, that is, it should have earned 100% support.

And yet, 30 Republicans opposed it (see chart below).

In the following video, Al Franken explains the reasons for his amendment (S. Amdt. 2588) to the Department of Defense Appropriations Bill (H.R. 3326):

Franken’s amendment passed 68 to 30 in the Senate’s vote on October 6th.

Thirty Republican senators (the naysayers in the chart below), including John McCain, the man who wanted to be president, voted against Franken’s amendment, putting themselves in the position of — in effect — supporting gang rape.
