Chambliss draws fire for comments on sexual assaults in military – Atlanta Business Chronicle

Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss has sparked a flurry of comments on social media sites due to statements he made during hearings Tuesday in Washington, D.C. on sexual assault in the military, that hormone levels created by nature may play a role in sexual assaults, reports Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV.

At the hearings, military leaders pushed for commanders to keep their authority to handle sexual assault cases.

Some lawmakers are pushing legislation to remove commanders from the process of deciding whether serious crimes, including sexual misconduct cases, go to trial.
