Liz Trotta says women are being "raped too much"

February 19, 2012

Fox News contributor Liz Trotta made headlines last Sunday when she reacted to a 64% rise in violent sexual assaults in the military by saying, “What did they expect? These people are in close contact,” among other controversial remarks. Trotta also made it clear that she feels the military is spending funds on unnecessary services that have resulted from the rise in sexual assaults. Abuse counseling and response efforts are “bureaucracy” and a waste of money on women who are simply, “being raped too much.”
