So our Sen. Burr is on record for voting against Al Franken’s bill that prohibits the Pentagon from hiring contractors that won’t allow women employees to sue if male employees rape them on the job, as in the Halliburton case in Iraq. Sen. Burr is among 30 male Republican senators who think rape is okay if employees of Federal contractors like Halliburton are involved.
Today, I sent the following letter to Senator Burr:
Senator Richard Burr
217 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Dear Senator Burr;
Please explain to me your reasoning for voting against Senator Al Franken’s bill ( S.AMDT.2588 / H.R.3326 ) concerning Federal contracts with Halliburton or any other contractor who requires mandatory arbitration clauses to be signed by employees, thereby prohibiting female employees from suing when they are raped by fellow male employees.
