Sen. Martha McSally says she was raped by officer in Air Force

Senator Martha McSally, the first female combat pilot in the US Air Force, said on Wednesday she had been raped by a superior officer. McSally, speaking during a Senate hearing on sexual assault in the military, said she did not report it because she blamed herself and did not trust the system. McSally did not identify her attacker. Sexual assault in the US military is largely under-reported.

Where is your proof and why is this coming now instead of then?

I want some more evidence. maybe she's telling the truth, maybe she isn't, but I need more than 1 side. I voted for you mcsally, and you're up for re election in just a couple years if memory serves, so if this is some BS stunt to try to actually win your next election, let me tell you now, you cant lose me faster than faking a rape.

We shouldn’t just dismiss it until we hear both sides of the story.

I feel horrible for even thinking this, but for a split second I hoped this to be true because I don't want to believe that there are leftist idiots serving in the military. When will we reach the point (or rather reach it again) of seeing people as individuals and not as part of a group (leftist identity politics bullshit).

What I wonder, is why she didnt mention this when she came out last year saying she was sexually abused as a teen by her high school track coach? Why did it take her a year to drop the next bomb? Not calling her a liar, just seems odd to be dropped annually, as if being used strategically. Even if she's being 100% truthful, and she was strong enough to talk about her high school abuse last year, why wasn't she strong enough talk about the Air Force last year? Maybe I'm just cynical, but it just feels like an annual series. Feels like victim culture, even if true.

Why is it whenever public allegations like these are made the names are never given? just blanket statements?

Its horrible that these things happen and anyone who goes through something like this will obviously be dealing with it for the rest of their life. That being said, you HAVE to report sexual assault as soon as possible. Waiting will damage your case and creates oppurtunity for someone to make more victims.

Anyone who has been in the service and is honest knows this type of thing happens all the time. It's a part of the military culture, which is not going to go away quietly. In the late 70's while stationed in England every qtr we would have an Airman's appreciation night, usually sponsored by a beer company. They would rent out the Airman's Club, sell heavily discounted drinks and bring in a really bad comedian and some really nasty strippers, the kind that would shoot ping pong balls from their lady parts. We were encouraged to attend as a way of building morale (for the guys not so much for the gals). I knew three gals who were forced into unwanted sex by their supervisors. It was never physically forced, but I can make life easy or hard on you.
