Military Sexual Assault Bill Gains Momentum

Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) "have joined an upstart effort to remove the chain of command from military sexual assault cases," Politico reports.

"The tea party favorites give the bill's lead sponsor, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) , critical conservative cover as she battles the Pentagon and hawks in both parties on her proposal to create a new prosecution system for major military crimes."
