Susan Davis Statement on Sexual Assault Report
WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis, Ranking Member of the Military Personnel Subcommittee, released the following statement on the annual report by the Department of Defense Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office.
"Sexual assault is a crime that is in direct opposition to the core ideals of our military and our nation, undermining readiness and national security. We should be doing everything we can to support victims of sexual assault in the military and keep all of our personnel safe.
“We must commit to an unfailing effort to identify perpetrators, prosecute them, and ensure that their criminal records follow them wherever they go. I am working on legislative options that achieve this objective swiftly and definitively."
