Rape in the US military, clean elections for California. Col. Ann Wright, with 29 years of service in the Army and Army Reserve, offers a chilling account of sexual assault and sexual harrassment in the military–where 30% of women report being raped and 80% subject to harassment. PBC notes that the homophobic opposition to repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell does not even acknowledge the problems caused by out of control heterosexuals in the military. Here is the link to Col. Wright’s recent article that we reference; and here is the link to Penny Coleman’s article. California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) makes the case for campaign finance reform, and Trent Lange of the fair elections coalition defines the terms of Prop 15 on the June ballot, which would set up a pilot program of publicly funded elections.
