Original Post:
Virginia Senator Mark Warner (a co-sponsor of S2692) was one of the 8 Representatives that stood in front of the media last week (before they all left D.C. for the 5-week August Break) to announce Senator Claire McCaskill’s Campus Safety and Accountability Act. The array of articles following this press conference carried catchy titles that no one in their right mind would ever oppose, “Holding Campuses Accountable”, ‘Bipartisan Bill Takes Aim at Campus Sexual Assault” and “Crackdown on Campus Sexual Assaults”.
