Cline votes NO on expanding rights for sexual assault victims

Many thanks to Catherine Giovannoni of Frederick County (soon to be part of the Sixth Congressional District) for her excellent piece in The Winchester Star calling out Republican Congressman Ben Cline for voting NO on a new law banning employers from forcing people to settle claims of sexual assault or harassment through private arbitration proceedings instead of in a court of law.

As Ms. Giovannoni notes:

The bill received bipartisan support, with 113 Republicans joining 222 Democratic members of Congress to pass the law.

But not Republican Congressman Ben Cline.

Why not, Congressman? Aren’t victims of sexual misconduct entitled to a day in court?
