Franken Anti-Rape Bill Makes It Into Law

Despite worries it would be stripped out in conference (as well as Republican whines that they were actually being held accountable for their nay votes), the Franken anti-rape amendment was part of the defense appropriations bill President Obama just signed into law.

Congratulations, Senator Franken -- an excellent holiday gift to our men and women serving abroad.

If it's a gift doesn't that imply there's no human right to not be raped, merely Al Franken's discretion?

... Just ribbing ya. Glad Congress actually managed to get the most erroneous and despised of loopholes closed.
